 NO CHEERING CROWDS TO MACMILLAN


A wonderful end to a year of some really superb books from the Agency's clients.

In the final deal of 2016, Macmillan won an auction for World English rights in Frederick Taylor's new book. For delivery January 2018 NO CHEERING CROWDS will chart month by month the final pre-war year 1938 - 1939. As with his previous international bestsellers DRESDEN, THE BERLIN WALL and THE DOWNFALL OF MONEY, Frederick will show how the macro events of history impacted on the individual - in Germany and in Britain and led to a slide into war between nations already hollowed out by the carnage of WW1 just twenty years earlier. As we all now know, nationalism, populism and prejudice have not disappeared and this book will be a very important and very sobering reminder that we ignore the lessons of history at out peril.


A happy Christmas and a peaceful 2017 to all visitors to this site.

 THE LITTLE BOOK OF PEACE


Tiddy Rowan's 'Little Book of Mindfulness' sold 200,000 copies and this latest book published on Thursday by Piatkus could not be more needed or more relevant. So many people are so frightened at the direction the world is taking and this book is full of such sanity and wisdom - do read it.

 GILLON AITKEN - MY MENTOR AND FRIEND


So very sad to hear yesterday that Gillon, simply the best agent in the world and a generous, witty, wise man who gave me my start in publishing died yesterday. I was his rather bolshy secretary in the 1970s - fresh out of university and ostentatiously unable to do shorthand. Gillon said that he always wrote very short letters and that he would tell me what he wanted to say and why and then I could write them. Was that all right? Could anyone have a more delightful boss? I learnt so much from him - he was a brilliant chess player and he was always three moves ahead of everyone else in business. He would be surprised to know how very deeply his towering. elegant ;presence will be missed.
