 TIM O'BRIEN REISSUED


When I started this agency I was entrusted with the UK representation of some of the finest living American novelists by their late, great publisher Seymour (Sam) Lawrence. Tom McGuane, Jim Harrison, Jayne Anne Phillips, Barry Hannah, and Tim O'Brien to name just a few. I am thrilled that Fourth Estate share my passion for O'Brien's classic stories of conflict and aftermath and they are now all available in an 'O'Brien library. Read THE THINGS THEY CARRIED...

 DOWNTON ABBEY MEETS THE ARCHERS....


Well that's how one happy reader described PRUE LEITH's terrific THE FOOD OF LOVE saga which is out in paperback next month. It's a perfect bookclub book and peopled with characters as vibrant as their splendid creator. The second in the saga - THE PRODIGAL DAUGHTER - will be published in September.

 KEITH MOON STOLE MY LIPSTICK


Judith Wills is one of my longest-serving clients having sold literally millions of her diet and healthy-eating titles over the last two decades.


But Judith's first job as a pop-loving teenager was on the legendary and first of the fan-mags of the 60s - FAB. Her memoir - subtitled  THE SWING SIXTIES, THE GLAM 70S AND ME - charts the highs and lows of the eight years she spent working on the 'dream job '. She sang with FREDDIE MERCURY, got high with JIM MORRISON, had a strange encounter with DAVID BOWIE, babysat KATE BECKINSALE, lunched the GEORGE BEST and got chased by ANDY WILLIAMS (and many others..)


She also experienced the darker side of the beginnings of the 'free love' era when the reality often simply meant freedom for men to prey on vulnerable young women and love wasn't on the agenda.

It's a highly recommended read for anyone interested in a rather unique insiders view of a decade that never ceases to fascinate.

 AND NOW..JIM POWELL'S LATEST


This morning brings another of those deliveries of cardboard that mean all that work - the conversations, emails, negotiations, anxieties - is done and dusted and the advance finished copy of the actual BOOK emerges! An agent's anticipation and pleasure can never match an author's at this moment but it's still pretty exciting and even after decades in this business it NEVER palls. Picador have done Jim Powell more than proud and TRADING FUTURES (published March 10th) looks wonderful and it would be hard not to pick it up...

 DEATH ON EARTH ARRIVES


Today's mail brought early copies of JULES HOWARD'S latest DEATH ON EARTH; ADVENTURES IN EVOLUTION AND MORTALITY which will be published next month. There is, to the best of my knowledge, no other book out there that is so interesting, challenging, informative and ultimately life-affirming on the subject of mortality. I recommend it to everyone from 14 - 140! Jules writes with the wit and accessibility of Bill Bryson and he is also a regular visitor to schools where he runs workshops on evolution www.juleshoward.co.uk.
