From, May 27, 2021:

Cormorant Books’ Marc Côté has acquired world, dramatic, and audio rights to Daniel Gawthrop’s Double Karma. The first novel from the five-time nonfiction author is described as the story of an American who travels to his father’s native land of Burma in 1988 to learn about his roots and photograph the country. Caught up in the pro-democracy movement, he becomes increasingly involved in the student political uprising and finds himself on the battlefield, face-to-face with an enemy who looks just like him. Publication is expected for March 2023.”
