This blog series is not accustomed to promoting pop-lit. But how could I resist when I learned that the rights to celebrity biographer, Chas Newkey-Burden’s latest hit have been grabbed by canny Israeli publishers along with those in Indonesia and Russia.
Now dahlings, I’ll be furious if I’m not invited to a super-snooty launch party b’Aretz!
Chas says his opus “is selling like hot cakes here in England, which is nice. It’s been snapped up by publishers around the world and is currently also in the bestseller charts in Canada and Brazil”.
Chas is a favourite among Israel-watchers on Facebook as he is a wonderful supporter and pens a snappy blog, ‘OyVaGoy’ ( http://www.oyvagoy.com/) about which he says: “This is a friendly blog to share my passion for Israel. I'm not Jewish but I'm proud to support Israel and assist in the struggle against antisemitism”.
