I was pleased to see today that ‘Belle de Jour’ ,the internet’s most talked-about web diary, has a book deal. According to Publishers Marketplace, ‘Belle’ the London call girl, who may or may not be a literary name masquerading as a high-class hooker, has inked a deal with Weidenfeld & Nicolson/Orion to turn her anonymous tales of love-for-money into a manuscript due for delivery in August. The film rights are also being frantically contested. Is it worth the hype? Well, yes actually. I’ve been hooked since it picked up a Guardian ‘blogging’ prize late last year. If you liked Bridget Jones, you’ll like this – and ‘Belle’ also has the advantage of being better written.
