Eddie, the author…

[from thebookseller.com]

Little, Brown this week snapped up rights to a memoir by comedian, actor and, latterly, marathon runner Eddie Izzard.

Antonia Hodgson, publisher of the commercial division at Little, Brown, bought British Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) from Conville & Walsh agent Jo Unwin after a seven-way auction concluded in a “very significant six-figure deal” according to C&W.

Eddie Izzard: Marathon Man will be published in September and will cover the comedian’s feat of running 43 marathons in 51 days last year as well as a wider story about his inspirations and experiences around the UK.

Unwin also agented a “high six-figure” deal for literary debut Pigeon English.
