Devil Wears Prada sequel to HC

HarperCollins is to publish the sequel to the bestselling The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger, to be released in April 2013.

HarperFiction publishing director Lynne Drew bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, in the follow-up, Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, through Vivienne Schuster at Curtis Brown on behalf of Sloan Harris of ICM in the US (where the book will be published by Simon & Schuster). The book has been under contract as part of a multi-book deal, but it was not known if Weisberger would write a sequel.

The story is set eight years after heroine Andy Sachs has escaped Runway magazine and its editor, Miranda Priestly. Andy is editing bridal magazine Plunge and works alongside her old Runway colleague Emily. She is also about to marry Max, the scion of a media company. However, Andy is still haunted by her days at Runway, and she soon finds herself back in Miranda's path.

Drew said: "We had enormous fun and huge success publishing The Devil Wears Prada and I'm thrilled to be once more encountering the world of glossy mags, Miranda Priestly and our favourite heroine, Andy Sachs, with a novel set to be one of the big summer reads of 2013."
