Victoria Coren’s memoir “For Richer For Poorer” will soon be published by Canongate, as she has arranged to sell the rights for her novel to publishers Canongate. The decision followed the fierce bidding war with rivals Viking.
Coren is known to be a poker expert specializing in Texas Hold’em poker . She was the first ever woman to win £500,000 on the European Poker Tour after winning the Main Event. She has appeared on Sky Sports’ William Hill Poker Grand Prix II and can be seen practicing her skill at the Victoria Casino on London’s Edgware Road.
The memoir has been described as “funny, moving [and] honest”. The book is one of those that poker fans are looking forward to. Nevertheless, the book will be published not sooner than in spring 2009.
