Milk of Paradise by Lucy Inglis sells to Macmillan

Georgina Morley of Macmillan has acquired world English language rights in Milk of Paradise, by historian and blogger Lucy Inglis, from Kirsty McLachlan.

The book is a history of opium, and “promises to be every bit as enticing, authoritative and as packed with riveting things you never know” as Georgian London (Viking), Inglis’ first book.
