Three years after it was first published in the U.S., Lawrence Wright's monumental book, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, will be published in the U.K. for the first time on March 17 by Silvertail Books.

Wright's book grew out of a February 2011 article in The New Yorker, where he's a staff writer, and the book was the basis for Alex Gibney's Emmy-winning 2015 documentary, also titled Going Clear. But until now, Wright had been unable to find a publisher in England willing to put out his controversial book about the notoriously litigious church.

Humfrey Hunter's small imprint, Silvertail, is releasing Going Clear as a paperback and ebook, and will be testing Scientology's resolve in a country where it's easier to sue a publisher and win.
