Yellow Kite has acquired a book about divorce by the woman who coined the phrase “conscious uncoupling”, used by actress Gwyneth Paltrow to describe her separation from musician Chris Martin.
Publisher Liz Gough bought UK and Commonwealth rights to Katherine Woodward Thomas’s Conscious Uncoupling from Lance Fitzgerald, v.p. and director of subsidiary rights at the Crown Publishing Group.
Woodward Thomas offers a five-step blueprint for how people can navigate a breakup with honour and respect.
Gough said: “Conscious Uncoupling is accessible, wise and empowering. The focus is on coming to terms with a break up, getting to know yourself better and even using the experience to transform and enrich your entire life. With half of marriages ending in divorce today, it is no longer a guilty secret. This is a constructive, useful and important book.”
Woodward Thomas said: “There are few things in life that are as devastating as going through the painful break up of a relationship and it can often feel like your whole world has shattered. But if you engage in the Conscious Uncoupling process then I can promise that you will make the best you possibly can of a very difficult situation.”
Conscious Uncoupling will be published on 24th September 2015.
