NEW YORK (AP) — The release date for an upcoming memoir by the late New York Times reporter Anthony Shadid has been moved up from late March to the end of February.

On Friday, a day after the Pulitzer Prize winner died of an apparent asthma attack in Syria, "House of Stone" was in the top 40 on Amazon.com. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt had planned to publish the book March 27, but "House of Stone" will instead come out Feb. 28.

The 43-year-old journalist had worked previously for The Associated Press, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. He won Pulitzer Prizes for international reporting in 2004 and 2010 when he was with the Post. His other books include "Night Draw Nears," based on his reporting in Iraq.
