Guardian Faber will publish Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy: And Other Rules to Live By by comedian David Mitchell. Laura Hassan acquired World All Language rights from Ivan Mulcahy at MMBCreative.
The book will be published on 7th November. "This is a collection of Mitchell's brilliant, spot-on, super funny Observer columns," said editorial director Hassan. "No other writer is a match for the utterly dumbfounding times we live in and I hope this cheering book will wrapped up under many Christmas trees this year."
Mitchell said: "I’m delighted to be working with the team at Guardian Faber on another attempt to set the world to rights after the last one failed so spectacularly. So I’m going to really double down on the out-of-touch hypocritical centrist whingeing, while sprinkling in a few offensive jokes for old times' sake. If you buy one book this autumn, then this whole industry is completely unsustainable."
