Assange Memoir Due Next Year
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is reported to have sold his memoir to UK press Canongate, according to the Bookseller.
Still facing charges for sexual assault in Sweden, Assange is expected to deliver the manuscript in March of next year. Daily Finance reports that Canongate publisher Jamie Byng had confirmed the news via email with a US edition to be published by Knopf. News of a Spanish translation broke earlier this week when Claudio Lopez of Random House Mondadori tweeted “Manuscrito listo en marzo” — the manuscript will be ready in March.
No news yet of Australian edition, but as Canongate is a sister publisher of Melbourne-based Text Publishing it’s likely that it would be published early next year. Daily Finance wrapped up their coverage with: “Speaking of irony, what are the chances the book gets leaked before it’s published?”
