WORD: 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 country.

"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.

Unbridled Books is the independent press founded by Fred Ramey and Greg Michalson. For more information about Unbridled Books’ titles visit their website.
