 BRILLANT BAKE OFF AND CONGRATULATIONS TO PRUE


What a triumph last night! It was so exciting to see the new series moved to Channel 4 and  Prue Leith looking so at home in the baking tent. She says it has just been a joy to be involved with; a wonderful happy atmosphere and the bakers a delight as well as brilliant. New publishing from Prue soon...

 A LOST CLASSIC REVIVED


Very early in my career as an agent I represented the remarkable memoir of an extraordinary woman, Janet White. in the early 1950s Janet defied the conventions of her gender and class and determined to spend her life working in solitary and beautiful places as a shepherd. Her book, THE SHEEP STELL was published twenty years ago by a small imprint which closed soon after publication but the book had wonderful reviews from Jenni Diski and Colin Thubron chose it as one of his Books of the Year.


Since her book came out there has of course been a whole new fashion for this kind of memoir - but hers was the first. Constable have now bought the rights to an updated version with a new introduction by Colin Thubron and it will be a lead title for them in March next year. Janet is now 87and still farming. It would make the most thrilling film as despite her love of solitude her beauty was a magnet and those attracted were not always entirely sane...

 FEVER TREE......THE BOOK


Just holding the hot off the press advance copy of  the stunning book of cocktails from the world's best bars using Fever Tree mixers. This is one of the UK's most successful new companies and their premium mixers are now stocked in every supermarket. The book will be published by Mitchell Beazley the leading drinks publisher - in September and it is so enticing and beautiful that I think this is the top Christmas present of the season.
