Trapeze jumps on Hollingworth's Mad Dad

Trapeze has signed a “moving” memoir about a young woman’s return to rural Wales to care for her father, who has Alzheimer’s, after a “hotly contested” auction.

Publisher Anna Valentine bought world English-language rights to My Mad Dad by Robyn Hollingworth from Cathryn Summerhayes at Curtis Brown.

Described as “lyrical, poignant and beautifully written, with flashes of brilliant humour”, the book will be published in April 2018.
