Sphere buys Tina Fey memoir

Sphere has acquired the autobiography of US comedy star Tina Fey, with editor-in-chief Antonia Hodgson acquiring British Commonwealth (incl. Australia and New Zealand) rights.

Hodgson bought the rights to the title, Bossypants, from Hachette US, where it will be published by Reagan Arthur Book, part of Little, Brown.

Hodgson said: "We are so proud to be publishing Tina Fey—one of the smartest, funniest and most perceptive writers in the world."

The book will tell Fey's life story so far, charting her life from her days as a "vicious nerd" at school to her time on US satirical show "Saturday Night Live" and the creation of New York-set sitcom "30 Rock".

Sphere will publish on 7th April as a £16.99 hardback.
