Major paperback deal for Cezair-Thompson’s ‘The Pirates Daughter’
Edited Press Release
Unbridled Books announced that it has sold the trade paperback rights
for Margaret Cezair-Thompson’s
surprise fall hit, "The Pirates Daughter," in a significant six-figure
deal to Jane von Mehren at
Random House. Cezair-Thompson’s latest novel was inspired by Errol Flynn’s accidental arrival in
Jamaica in 1946.
"The Pirates Daughter" is the number one Book Sense Pick for October
and has been called this fall’s sleeper sensation. The novel has earned
rave reviews from booksellers, reviewers, and advance readers across
"The Pirates Daughter," which has a publication date of October 15,
2007, spans two generations of women whose destinies become
inextricably linked with matinee idol Errol Flynn’s. This lively novel
tells the story of a vanished era, of uncommon kinships, forbidden
passions, betrayal and atonement in a paradisal, tropical setting.
As adept with Jamaican vernacular as she is at revealing the internal
machinations of a fading Hollywood star, Margaret Cezair-Thompson
weaves a saga of a mother and daughter finding their way in a colonial
nation that is struggling to rise to the challenge of independence.
Margaret Cezair-Thompson is the author of a previous novel, "The True
History of Paradise." Born in Jamaica, West Indies, she teaches
literature and creative writing at Wellesley College.
