HarperCollins hot for Woody Allen

QUICK TAKES

October 11, 2003|From Associated Press

HarperCollins U.K. has made an offer for the British rights for Woody Allen's yet-unwritten memoirs, a spokeswoman said Friday at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Allen's agents have been shopping the book fair in Germany to gauge interest in the definitive life story of the film director and actor best known for his neurotic characters. The status of the much-coveted U.S. rights was not immediately clear, although the New York Post reported that bidding was climbing after Allen rejected a $1.6-million offer from Random House.

"He is waiting to see the level of interest before committing himself to the book," HarperCollins U.K. spokeswoman Susana Frayn said. "If he would write the book, we would be delighted to publish it."
