A.N. Wilson moves to Atlantic Books

6th July 2010

Novelist, biographer and critic A.N. Wilson has confirmed he will move publishers to take up a new eight-book deal.

Wilson, whose past works include After the Victorians and Our Times, will move from Arrow Books to Atlantic Books and publish his first title with the firm in May 2011.

The author's first work as part of the deal is entitled Dante in Love and will examine the relationship between Italian poet Dante Alighieri and his muse Beatrice Portinari.

Wilson will write a historical novel set in industrial England, a critique of various ways to study the Bible, a children's novel entitled Furba and the Mokes, and a landmark new biography of Queen Victoria. Three of his backlisted titles will also be reissued by Atlantic.

Toby Mundy, chief executive of the company, commented: 'Wilson is one of the English-speaking world's pre-eminent literary figures, the author of bestselling and award-winning fiction and non-fiction. That we are to become his publishers is a key milestone in the history of Atlantic Books.'

In 2006, Wilson was caught out by a literary hoax played by writer Bevis Hillier and included a fake letter purported to be by Sir John Betjeman in his biography Betjeman.
