Publishers Marketplace lists an eye-catching book deal that seems to include just about everything. Check out the announcement:
“Joanne Herring’s THE WOMAN BEHIND CHARLIE WILSON’S WAR: The Extraordinary True Story of the Real Joanne Herring and how Brains, Beauty, Faith and Cleavage Confronted Communism and Changed the World, from the woman known as the Houston socialite portrayed by Julia Roberts in the film Charlie Wilson’s War, telling her full story — with all its God, guns, and Gucci glory — in this colorful memoir pitched as equal parts Gone With the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, and The Devil Wears Prada, with a dash of Cinderella, to Christina Boys at Center Street, for publication in Spring 2011, by Lacy Lynch at Dupree Miller & Associates (world).”
Gone with the Wind meets Lawrence of Arabia meets the Devil Wears Prada meets Cinderella. That’s quite a mouthful. Throw Da Vinci and some zombies in there and you’d have covered all the bases.
