Faber buys two from Lippman
01.01.70 | Charlotte Williams
Faber and Faber has acquired the rights to two new crime novels from American novelist Laura Lippman.
The writer's previous books were published in the UK by HarperCollins' commercial imprint, Avon, but her 18th novel, And When She Was Good, will now be with Faber's crime and thriller list.
Rights were bought for the UK and Commonwealth by Faber senior editor Angus Cargill from Arabella Stein on behalf of Vicky Bijur.
The e-book version of the novel will be released in November, with a mass-marker paperback following in May 2013.
Her following novel, as yet untitled, will follow in the autumn.
Lippman's US publishers, Morrow, will publish the books simultaneously.
And When She Was Good follows a single mother whose life begins to unravel after the discovery of the body of a suburban madam.
