Early autumn news

Wed, September 19, 2018

As the glorious summer blows itself out, we have some cheer to usher in autumn. 

Numbed by Numbers, Paul Goodwin’s new book on our obsession with and confusion about numbers, and how to deal with them, has been snapped up by Profile. Ciao, Stirling, Val Pirie’s delightful memoir of the golden age of British motor racing and her many years working with Stirling Moss, has been bought by Biteback. And it will be good to see Henry Venmore-Rowland’s two novels about the Year of the Three Emperors, The Last Caesar and The Sword & the Throne, sitting among Canelo’s distinguished list of Roman histories.

All excellent deals for wonderful authors. 

We are also very excited to announce a new client for the agency: Timeri N. Murari. Tim is the author of Taj, a novel about the love between the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his queen Arjumand, leading to the eventual building of the Taj Mahal, which was translated into 25 languages and became an international bestseller. He has written a further 13 novels and 4 works of non-fiction. Enquiries should be directed to Peter Buckman at peter@theampersandagency.co.uk.

Welcome, Tim, and congratulations Paul, Val and Henry!
