Pamela Dorman Books / Viking to Publish New Novel by Jojo Moyes, Continuing the Story of Louisa Clark
Pamela Dorman Books/Viking is delighted to announce the publication of a new novel by Jojo Moyes featuring Louisa Clark, the character readers have come to know and love from global bestsellers Me Before You and After You. The new novel will be published in Spring 2018, and will follow Lou as she heads for New York, only to find herself torn between her old life and her new.
Jojo Moyes is a bestselling novelist and a journalist. Her previous novels have all been met with critical acclaim and bestselling sales, including Me Before You, After You, The Girl You Left Behind and One Plus One.
Jojo Moyes’ profile is at an all-time high with worldwide sales of Me Before You and After You at nearly seventeen million copies. Last year’s film adaptation of Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, introduced legions of new fans to Jojo’s writing and the beloved character of Louisa Clark. Her works are available in a staggering 43 foreign languages and have sold twenty-nine million copies in total worldwide.
Jojo Moyes said, “I always knew that once I committed to write the sequel to Me Before You, I would also write a third book; I saw it quite clearly as a trilogy. Revisiting Lou has been a joy, as I push her into a completely new country, a brand new world, and a house full of secrets. With her usual blend of humour and emotion she has to ask herself some pretty fundamental questions – not least, which side of the Atlantic does she really belong? I hope readers enjoy this new adventure as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.”
Pamela Dorman, Publisher of Pamela Dorman Books, said, “Any new Jojo Moyes novel is a cause for rejoicing. But for readers in America, the chance to have the iconic Lou Clark come to New York to find a new life is a particular pleasure. There’s no doubt that Jojo’s unique blend of great storytelling and unforgettable characters, combined with a sense of humor all her own will make this new Lou Clark novel one readers will be clamoring for come next year.”
Jojo Moyes is a UK based author who worked at the Independent for ten years before leaving to write full-time. She lives in Essex with her husband and their three children. Jojo is managed by Curtis Brown and her agent Sheila Crowley.
