Suarez autobiography from Headline

Headline is to publish Liverpool footballer Luis Suarez’s autobiography this autumn.

Announcing the book at Headline’s sales conference at the London Transport Museum last night (30th April) Jonathan Taylor, Headline publishing director for non-fiction, said the publisher “firmly believed this will be the biggest selling sports book of the year”.

Suarez was named the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year at the weekend, and has so far scored 30 goals this season, more than any other player in the Premier League.

Taylor said: “His career has not been without controversy. In his hard hitting book he will talk openly and frankly about the highs and lows of his career.”

Referring to Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League, Taylor said: “”Maybe he’ll also talk about what it’s like to lift the trophy at the Kop.”

Headline also announced it was releasing Looking for Madeleine, a non-fiction book exploring the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Authors Anthony Summers and Robyn Swan have had access to police files and have interviewed members of Madeleine’s family. Taylor said he believed Looking for Madeleine would “become the definitive book on the case”.

Comedian Omid Djalili was among the authors to appear at the event, where it was revealed that his autobiography, being released this autumn, will be called Hopeful.
