Farage to publish pre-election book with Biteback

Biteback Publishing has signed a new book by UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage.

The Purple Revolution: The Year that Changed Everything was signed by Biteback m.d. Iain Dale in a deal with Charlie Brotherstone at Ed Victor.

It is described as a a book that: "takes us beyond the caricature of the beer-drinking, chain-smoking adventurer in Jermyn Street double-cuffs, to describe the values that underpin Farage’s own journey; from successful City trader to critic of the European Union and champion of Britain’s right to govern itself, revealing his loss of faith in the mainstream parties and his personal vision for a Britain outside the EU."

Dale said: "I am delighted to be publishing Nigel Farage just before what will be one of the most exciting general elections in decades."

Biteback previously published Farage's autobiography Flying Free in 2011.

Farage was named as the Times "Man of the Moment" at the end of 2014, with UKIP gaining two MPs, as well as gaining 24 MEPs.

The book, which will be backed by what Biteback calls a "major" PR and marketing campaign, will be released ahead in paperback on 5th March, priced at £9.99, ahead of the May general election.
