Hodder to revamp Love Story author
01.01.70 | Katie Allen
Hodder is planning to revamp the novels of Erich Segal, whose first book, Love Story, was made into an iconic film in 1970 starring Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw.
The author died in January 2010.
Hodder publisher Carolyn Mays bought British and Commonwealth rights in Segal’s eight books from Andrew Nurnberg, with plans to launch a new publication programme for the novels starting with a new edition of Love Story in February 2013 for Valentine’s Day. The other novels include Oliver’s Story, The Class, Prizes, and Man, Woman and Child.
All the books will be packaged to establish the classic credentials of each novel, and published simultaneously as B-format paperback and digital originals.
Mays said: “I am happy to admit to having wept over Love Story not very long after it was first published, and I am delighted to be playing a part in bringing it and Erich Segal’s wonderful other novels to a new audience.”
