Lauren Weisberger Inks Deal for The Devil Wears Prada Sequel

Novelist Lauren Weisberger has landed a book deal for a sequel to her bestselling 2003 novel, The Devil Wears Prada. Simon & Schuster will publish Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns in April 2013.

U.K. rights for the book went to HarperFictionUK. ICM agent Sloan Harris negotiated the U.S. deal and Curtis Brown agent Vivienne Schuster handled the U.K. deal. Here’s more about the book, from the release:

Eight years after saying goodbye to Runway, and escaping the clutches of Miranda Priestly, it seems as though Andrea “Andy” Sachs has the perfect life. The lowly assistant is herself now tabloid fodder. She edits The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine on newsstands, and works side-by-side with Emily, her old Runway colleague and new BFF.  Andy is madly in love with Max, a dashing scion of a storied media company, and planning to tie the knot.  But Andy is still haunted by her days at Runway, and the specter of Miranda Priestly.  Andy can hardly know that all her efforts to build a bright new life will lead her directly to the one she fled — and into the path of Miranda.
