Two Roads has acquired Cunk on Everything: The Philomena Cunk Encyclopedia.
The book is by Philomena Cunk - aka actress Diane Morgan, star of Charlie Brooker’s "Weekly Wipe", "Moments of Wonder" and the BBC2 series "Cunk on Britain" - who has co-authored the title with the help of Brooker and the author team behind the Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups series, Joel Morris and Jason Hazeley.
After years of asking the big questions - like "what did people do before evolution?" and "what is clocks?" - Cunk will compress the entirety of human knowledge into one handy Christmas gift book, from Shakespeare to sausages, from evolutionary psychology to Brush Strokes.
Editorial director Kate Hewson, who acquired world rights from Jo Unwin at Jo Unwin Literary Agency, called Cunk "a voice of reason and sanity, who cuts through all the superfluous ‘facts’ and ‘information’ to get to the heart of these complex topics".
Cunk commented: "This book is great because it covers everything in existence apart from the 95% of stuff not worth bothering with."
Two Roads will publish on 1st November 2018 in hardback and audiobook.
