Pan Macmillan has acquired the fourth novel by current acting head of rights at HarperCollins, Pippa Wright, The Gospel According to Drew Barrymore.
Pan Macmillan bought UK and Commonwealth rights in the novel from Andrew Kidd at Aitken Alexander Associates.
The book follows the friendship and lives of three girls, born in the same year as Drew Barrymore, from when they first see "ET" to the present day, drawing life lessons from key moments in the best and worst Drew Barrymore films.
Wright said: "Drew Barrymore's transformation from child star to wayward teen and then to successful actress and producer speaks to any woman who has ever been unsure of who she really is or where her life is going."
Pan Macmillan will publish her third novel The Foster Husband for 2013.
