Dystel sold world rights to Hoarders by Matt Paxton, the host of the A&E show of the same name, to John Duff at Perigee. Perigee is the trade paperback division of Penquin Publishing (www.us.penquin.com). Every week Paxton cleans up the houses of people with this rare dysfunction, while also helping them deal with the psychological reasons behind their inability to throw stuff away; the show is A&E’s most popular, with roughly three million viewers. Paxton is co-writing with Phaedre Hise, and the book, subtitled True Stories of Tackling Extreme Clutter, will explain the disorder, how to diagnose it, and how to cure it. Click here to learn more.
