Amy has been talking about doing a crafts book for a while, but Grand Central Publishing has now officially announced it:
GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING TO PUBLISH NEW BOOK BY COMEDIAN AND ACTRESS AMY SEDARIS
New York, NY â€“ April 30, 2009 â€“ Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, announced today that it will publish a new book by comedian and actress Amy Sedaris, currently untitled, tentatively slated for publication in Fall 2010.
A follow-up to her critically acclaimed entertaining book on entertaining, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, which was published in October 2006 and quickly became one of the most successful books of the year, the new book continues her unique approach to home life through the use of fun, long-forgotten crafts.
Jamie Raab, Executive Vice President and Publisher, Grand Central Publishing, who acquired U.S. rights for the book said, â€œWe are thrilled that our successful relationship with the wonderful and gifted Amy Sedaris is continuing. Working with her proved what her legions of fans already know â€“ that she is multi-talented and extraordinarily creative.â€
Amy Sedaris has appeared often on screen, both large and small.Â Sheâ€™s co-creator, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello, of Comedy Centralâ€™s hit show Strangers with Candy and half of the Obie-winning â€œTalent Familyâ€ (with her brother, David).Â Amy lives in Manhattan with the ghost of her imaginary boyfriend, Ricky, and her rabbit, Dusty.
The deal was negotiated with literary agent Tracy Fisher at the William Morris Agency.
