Little, Brown acquires more Gillian Tett

<p>Little, Brown has bought a new book by Gillian Tett, who was one of its bestselling authors with 2009&#39;s <em>Fool&#39;s Gold</em>, written about the banking crisis. </p><p>The new book, which is not yet titled, will see Tett expand her coverage from the financial world to a broader current affairs theme. It will look at how organisations are increasingly working in specialist groups &quot;that do not have an eye on the bigger picture&quot;, and the effect this disjointedness has on society as a whole.</p><p>Tim Whiting, publishing director of non-fiction at Little, Brown, bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Karolina Sutton at ICM/Curtis Brown. L,B plans to publish the title in hardback and simultaneous trade paperback in 2013.</p><p>&quot;This promises to be a highly influential book that takes Gillian into the area of the market occupied by Malcolm Gladwell&#39;s books and <em>Freakonomics</em> and <em>Superfreakonomics</em>,&quot; said Whiting.<br /><br /><br /> </p>
