Third book in Shipman's Brexit trilogy snapped up by William Collins

William Collins has acquired the third book in the Brexit trilogy by Sunday Times political editor Tim Shipman.

The book will follow up previous titles All Out War and Fall Out (both William Collins).

In a deal negotiated by Victoria Hobbs of A M Heath, publishing director Arabella Pike acquired World English language rights for the publisher.

As yet untitled, the book will chronicle events from January 2018 to March 2019 as May’s government grapples to negotiate a deal with Brussels – and any subsequent fallout.  

Shipman said: "I'm delighted to be working with William Collins again to chronicle this amazing era of British politics, which has been a gripping political and human drama, leavened with elements of comedy, tragedy and farce. Who knows what the third book will bring? We will probably have left the European Union. We will possibly have a new prime minister and we might know what the government's Brexit policy is."

Pike said: "Tim Shipman’s books are fast becoming classics. They are must-reads for anyone who wants to understand these tumultuous times. We couldn’t be happier to be working with him again on the third volume in the trilogy."

The book will be published by William Collins in October 2019.
