Coco Chanel Book Deal for University Professor

rgarelick2.jpgUniversity of Nebraska Lincoln professor Rhonda Garelick has sold a book about Coco Chanel, modern fashion, and European politics to Random House–a book entitled Antigone in Vogue.

Random House editorial director Jennifer Hershey bought North American rights. The deal was negotiated by Scott Moyers from the The Wylie Agency. The author is a critic of “performance, literature, fashion, and cultural politics.” Most recently, Garelick published Electric Salome: Loie Fuller’s Performance of Modernism with Princeton University Press.

Here’s more about the book: “capturing not only the dramatic story of Chanel’s life and loves but her enormous impact on 20th century culture, as well as the cultural and political forces that shaped her.”
