Faber lands Klopp love letter in 'significant' five-figure pre-empt

Faber has signed lifelong Liverpool FC fan Anthony Quinn’s first non-fiction book, a "love letter" to Jürgen Klopp.

Editorial director Angus Cargill acquired world all languages in a "significant five-figure" pre-empt from Jon Wood at Rogers, Coleridge & White, and will publish in November. Faber has already sold German rights to Markus Naegele at Heyne Hardcore in a "major" pre-empt.

Cargill said: "As Liverpool close in on their first league title in 30 years, it’s thrilling to see a book as affectionate and nuanced as this, one which so skilfully examines how Klopp has revived this club, how he has made it a collective endeavour for the fans, the players and staff, and the city. A success story like this is a rare and inspiring thing, and the way Klopp has simultaneously endeared himself to the wider football community is even rarer."

Quinn added: "Even as a lifelong LFC fan I never envisaged writing about football, but Jürgen Klopp was too good a subject to miss. He’s someone I’ve been thinking about, almost constantly, for five years. I hope I do him justice."
