Chatto & Windus has acquired the latest novel by Sadie Jones, who won the Costa First Novel Award for The Outcast.
Publishing director Clara Farmer bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, in Jones' fourth novel, Fallout, from Caroline Wood at Felicity Bryan Associates.
The publisher described the title as "a dark and seductive tale of adultery and jealousy set in the theatre world of 1970s London". Chatto will publish in spring 2014.
