The British press have begun speculating about who will publish the autobiography of former UK Prime Minister David Cameron. Mr Cameron, who resigned after the Brexit referendum in June, announced that he intends to send a summary of his autobiography to one of the most prominent publishing houses. The Independent newspaper said that the ex-leader is expected to make GBP 1.5 million pound from the sale of his book.
However, some sources quoted Ed Victor, Mr Cameron’s literary agent as saying that he plans to put David Cameron’s autobiography up for sale at GBP 4 million. This would be more in keeping with prices paid for autobiographies of former prime minister Tony Blair whose memoirs were bought for GBP 4.6 million in 2007 and Margaret Thatcher’s which were put up for sale at GBP 3.5 million.
David Cameron’s autobiography is considered highly important as a portrait of modern British politics, including the UK vote to leave the European Union (EU).
Many media reports indicate that the competition is confined between Viking and McMillan publishing houses.
