Globe reporter Meredith Goldstein’s new book gets optioned for a movie

“The Singles,’’ the debut novel by Globe reporter Meredith Goldstein, known to readers of the Names column and the popular “Love Letters’’ advice blog on Boston.com, isn’t even published yet, but the buzz around it is already building. Lime Orchard Productions, run by Stacey Lubliner and Jami Gertz of “Less Than Zero’’ fame, has bought the film and television rights to the book, which was sold by Katherine Flynn of the Kneerim & Williams agency in Boston. The novel weaves together the stories of five people who are the only ones to attend the same Maryland wedding without a plus one. The book, to be published by Plume, a division of Penguin, is due out next April, just in time for wedding season.
