01.01.70 | Philip Jones
Michael O'Mara Books has acquired the sequel to "Torchwood", "Doctor Who", "I'd Do Anything" and music theatre star John Barrowman's autobiography Anything Goes. Kate Gribble, commissioning editor, brokered the deal with Gavin Barker of Gavin Barker Associates.
I Am What I Am will be published on 1st October, and like the previous book will be written by John with his sister Carole E Barrowman. According to the publisher, the book will offer a "more in-depth exploration of John the man . . . his thoughts, opinions and experiences, îand in particular [will] focus on achievements over the past couple of years".
Gribble said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with John and Carole Barrowman again on a second autobiographical volume. I Am What I Am promises to be just as entertaining, heartfelt and revelatory as Anything Goes--if not more so--and John's many fans can look forward to a very funny, very honest and very intimate treat this Christmas."
