Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has sold his co-op on New York’s Upper West Side to the author of the Jack Reacher book series.

Jim Grant, known commonly by the pen name Lee Child, bought Khosrowshahi’s co-op in The Orwell House for $9.15 million. The 4-bedroom, 3-bath unit has a view of Central Park.

Khosrowshahi was 9 when his family moved to Tarrytown, NY from Iran after the 1978-79 Iranian Revolution, and he worked as an investment banker in New York before taking over Expedia in 2005. The longtime East Coaster joked about buying a Subaru when he moved to the Seattle area.

Khosrowshahi wasn’t the only very successful owner in The Orwell House. According to The Real Deal, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently listed a unit in the historic 1906 building for $600,000.
