Deal Announcement: Kobo and ECW Sign with Journalist Kevin Donovan to Publish Jian Ghomeshi Book
Page Two is pleased to announce a groundbreaking new publishing deal. In an unprecedented agreement, Kobo will partner with ECW Press to publish Jian Ghomeshi: Secret Life, a detailed exploration of the rise and downfall of the superstar radio personality by our agency client Kevin Donovan, the award-winning Toronto Star investigative journalist who has covered the story.
Jian Ghomeshi: Secret Life will reveal details and background about Ghomeshi, his tell-tale past, and ultimately how events and actions conspired to see him fired from his post as the star of the popular CBC Radio One show Q. After interviewing a number of women and former colleagues from Ghomeshi’s past, Donovan will tell the story of who the broadcaster with the winning touch really was behind the scenes.
In an industry first, the book will be published by Kobo, which will offer the digital version, and ECW Press, one of Canada’s most diversified independent publishers, which will offer the print version to the North American marketplace.
Donovan is represented by Page Two principal and Transatlantic associate agent Jesse Finkelstein, and Transatlantic partner and agent Samantha Haywood.
