Lewis’ maiden outing to The History Press

Lewis’ maiden outing to The History Press

The “warts-and-all” autobiography of former England cricketer Chris Lewis has been acquired by The History Press, which will publish the memoir in March 2017.

Lewis was released from prison in June after serving half of a 13-year sentence for drug smuggling.

Lewis said: “I’m excited and relieved to have my autobiography published next year. Like all good stories, there are many ups and downs, but this has an ending i guarantee you will not see coming.”

The publisher holds world rights to the as-yet-untitled book.
