Faber has acquired UK Commonwealth rights in a new book by punk icon, musician and artist, Viv Albertine, from Georgia Garrett at Rogers, Coleridge & White. This new work of non fiction will be published in summer 2016 and follows the sensational success of her memoir, Clothes Clothes Clothes, Music Music Music, Boys Boys Boys, which was awarded both Rough Trade Book of the Year and Sunday Times Music Book of the Year.
Viv Albertine’s brilliant new book picks up where the memoir finished with Viv’s life today, and explores her thoughts on the subjects that have in many ways defined her life: art, fashion, sex, feminism, and the journey from youth into middle age. Faber will publish in Trade Paperback, in the same format as her memoir, which has now sold close to 50,000 copies in all formats.
Lee Brackstone, Creative Director of Faber Social and Viv’s editor says: ‘Publication of Clothes Music Boys was another milestone in the development of the Faber Social list and its success has created a landscape for Viv that she is keen to navigate in her own inimitably fearless fashion. This book is less memoir and more window on the world as Viv sees it today. Every fan of Clothes Music Boys is in for a treat.’
