Publishing Deal - Cathi Unsworth

I'm currently running a competition to give-away copies of Cathi Unsworth's current book, Bad Penny Blues, but on Booktrade the other day there were details of Cathi's next project, announced by Serpent's Tail:

We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Cathi Unsworth – the queen of London Noir's - fourth novel WEIRDO.

Cathi's editor John Williams said:

'We're thrilled to be publishing Cathi's new book - her most personal and her most commercial title yet. Weirdo is a psychological thriller set in a seaside town in Norfolk (Cathi Unsworth's home turf), which moves between the eighties and the present, as a Cold Cases detective attempts to uncover the truth about a murder apparently carried out by a teenage goth girl twenty years earlier.'

Cathi Unsworth is a novelist, writer, editor and a regular on the rock'n'roll reading circuit who lives and works in London. She began her career on the legendary music weekly Sounds at the age of 19 and has worked as a writer and editor for many other music, film and arts magazines since, including Bizarre, Melody Maker, Mojo, Wire, Mslexia and Dazed and Confused.

Serpent's Tail will publish Weirdo by Cathi Unsworth in 2012.
