LB to Publish Guillaume Musso
Little, Brown and Company will publish The Reunion, by France’s #1 bestselling author, Guillaume Musso, on July 7, 2019. Asya Muchnick, v-p and executive editor at Little, Brown, acquired North American rights, while Federico Andornino, commissioning editor at Weidenfeld & Nicolson, acquired U.K. and Commonwealth rights. Both deals were struck with Musso’s French publisher, Calmann-Lévy. The book will be available in hardcover and e-book, and in an audio edition by Hachette Audio. Calmann-Lévy, Weidenfeld & Nicolson (part of the Orion Publishing Group), and Little, Brown & Company are all part of the Hachette Livre worldwide group. The book—pitched, the publisher said, as being "in the vein of Joël Dicker’s The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair and Harlan Coben’s Tell No One—is set on the French Riviera and takes place during a high school reunion, as dark secrets and past crimes are revealed."
