Cheesy title for Michael O'Mara

Cheesy title for Michael O'Mara

Michael O'Mara has acquired The Cheese and I: An Englishman's Voyage Through the Land of Fromage by Matt Feroze, with plans to publish on 5th September.

Senior editorial director Louise Dixon bought world rights directly from the author, who is a former accountant who gave up his job to move to France and immerse himself in the world of cheese.

Dixon said: "When we saw all the press surrounding Matt when he won the Concours National des Fromagers we thought his story, from accountancy to top of the cheese tree—in France—was irresistible. Having talked with Matt and looked at his blog I know he's a natural writer, and he has a tremendously inspiring story to tell."

The book will be published initially in hardback priced £14.99.
