Hardie Grant UK has acquired a relationship guide by Huffington Post writer Tracy Macmillan.
UK, Australia and New Zealand rights in Why You're Not Married . . . Yet: Straight Talk You Need to Get the Relationship You Deserve were jointly acquired by commissioning editor Kate Pollard and Hardie Grant Books m.d. Julie Pinkham from Cathryn Summerhayes of William Morris.
Pollard said: "We are hugely excited to be publishing Tracy Macmillan's Why You're Not Married ... Yet, based on her rather controversial yet overwhelmingly popular Huffington Post article. Straight-talking and witty, she's the perfect addition to our list. Single ladies: make this your bible for 2012!".
The book will address topics such as "Deluding Yourself and Other Tragedies", "Getting What You Want and Other Lies" and "Why Casual Sex Probably Won't Get You Married".
McMillan is a television writer who has most recently worked on the Emmy award-winning series "Mad Men". Her first title was I Love You and I'm Leaving You Anyway.
Hardie Grant will publish in paperback in June 2012.
