W&N buys Daisy Waugh

Weidenfeld & Nicolson has acquired a new title by Sunday Times columnist Daisy Waugh, I Don't Know Why She Bothers, to be published in June 2013.
Publishing director non-fiction Amanda Harris bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Clare Alexander at Aitken Alexander Associates in the title, which the publisher described as a "refreshing and entertaining look at guilt-free motherhood for the thoroughly modern woman".
Harris said: "As soon as I read Daisy's proposal, laughing and nodding in agreement as I went, I knew we had to publish this brilliant book. [It] is not merely a breath of fresh air on the guilt-ridden subject of motherhood, it's a rejuvenating arctic blast.
"Daisy is the perfect writer to take on the judgers (both male and female) with thought-provoking comment, sanity and truth-spearing wit."
