Canongate's Lord signs Everybody

Jenny Lord at Canongate has signed a “trailblazing new kind of non-fiction” from Olivia Laing (pictured) after a “competitive” auction.

Lord bought world rights, excluding north America, to Everybody from Rebecca Carter at Janklow & Nesbit.

W W Norton’s Jill Bialosky acquired North American rights.

Everybody is “an ambitious investigation” that melds cultural criticism, memoir, biography and psychology.
