Blair Hires US Lawyer to Broker a Memoir Deal
Interesting that Tony Blair has hired a US lawyer, Robert Barnett, to sell his memoirs. Aren't there any good literary agents in this country? If he had called, I could have told him about Ed Victor, Michael Sissons and Jonathan Lloyd to name but three. It is a further sign that Blair sees his financial future in America. Sky News reckons he could command up to $12 million for a book deal. Any publisher who pays anywhere near that deserves to go out of business.
