Following the success of the Sunday Times Number One Christmas bestseller Is It Just Me? Hodder & Stoughton are delighted to announce the acquisition of a new book by Miranda.
In Peggy and Me, to be published in 2016, Miranda will write about her day-to-day life and adventures with her faithful dog Peggy as well as sharing their joint observations on life. The huge success of her first book shows just what a national treasure Miranda is and how eagerly her fans will await the next slice of her take on life – with invaluable contributions from the irresistible Peggy.
Miranda’s editor, Hannah Black, says: ‘Miranda is loved by so many. But as the saying goes, behind every great woman stands a very small and opinionated dog. We’re absolutely delighted at Hodder that Peggy has finally agreed to join her mistress and put paw to paper.’
Miranda herself says: ‘I am so thrilled to have the chance to write a second book and look forward to sharing the comic trials and tribulations I have encountered with the wonderful gift that is dog ownership. I hope it Isn’t Just Me on this one too. Peggy has already changed with fame and is currently lying on a chaise with a gin in her paw saying “don’t worry reader, I’ll mainly write this one and will dish the dirt on my ridiculous owner”’.’
Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown says: ‘Peggy is very particular about who she works with, but after a lot of persuasion agreed with Miranda and me that Hodder were the right publishers for a book about which she feels so passionately.’
