Bullock swaps Cape for Ebury

Bullock swaps Cape for Ebury

Jonathan Cape assistant editor Clare Bullock is moving to Ebury after five years with the imprint.

Bullock is joining Ebury Press to cover Anna Mrowiec’s maternity leave as editor reporting to editorial director Sara Cywinski. She will start her new role on 15th January and will be working on narrative non-fiction.

Whilst at literary imprint Cape, Bullock published graphic novels Freedom Hospital by Hamid Sulaiman (winner of a 2017 PEN Translates Award) and Notes on a Thesis by Tiphaine Rivière, named as a book of the year by the Observer.

She has also worked on a variety of titles ranging from The Emperor Dowager Cixi by Jung Chang and Helen Macdonald's bestselling memoir H is for Hawk, as well as editing titles such as Jumpin’ Jack Flash by Keiron Pim and Dalila by Jason Donald.

After joining Random House in May 2011 in the e-book department, Bullock moved to Vintage six months later to work with managing editorial director Rowena Skelton-Wallace as the managing editorial assistant. She joined Jonathan Cape as editorial assistant in September 2012.

Bullock told The Bookseller: “I’m over the moon to be joining the excellent non-fiction team at Ebury Press. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the chance to work with the amazing team and wonderful authors at Jonathan Cape over the past five years, but am very excited for this new opportunity.”

Jonathan Cape is now recruiting for Bullock’s replacement.
