Little, Brown poaches Hiaasen
08.12.08 | Victoria Gallagher
Little, Brown has poached author Carl Hiaasen from Transworld. Jonny Geller at Curtis Brown acting on behalf of Esther Newberg at ICM has signed a two book deal with Sphere publisher David Shelley.
The first of the two books will be published in hardback in April 2010 and the second a year later. Shelley said that publishing Hiaasen was "a dream come true". "We have exciting plans for his UK publishing and, given that from 2010 he will be delivering a book a year, we think that there are great opportunities for building his profile still further.".
Hiaasen's latest Fairway to Hell was published by Bantam Press in the UK in August. In the US, Knopf will be publishing Hiaasen in hardback and partnering with Grand Central for the paperback.
