Biteback signs 'warts and all' Berlusconi book

Biteback Publishing, has acquired Berlusconi: the Epic Story of the Billionaire Who Took Over by Alan Friedman.

M.d Iain Dale acquired UK rights from Caroline Michel at Peters, Fraser and Dunlop.

Berlusconi tells the life story - “warts and all” - of the Italian media tycoon and billionaire turned Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi. In a series of “candid and revealing” interviews, Berlusconi discusses “everything from the infamous bunga-bunga parties” to his “most secret moments” with world leaders including Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin.

Dale said: “Silvio Berlusconi is undoubtedly the most colourful character to have graced the world’s political stage in recent years. Alan Friedman has done a remarkable job at really getting Berlusconi to open up about his astonishing life and career. The result is a book full of candid insights and fresh revelations, and I am delighted that Biteback will be publishing it.”

Berlusconi will be published in October and will be supported by a major press campaign.
