It has acquired the North American rights for Good Morning, Mr. Mandela, which will be
published worldwide on 19 June.
"It's tender, intimate, eye-opening, incredibly
moving, and offers a rare portrait of Nelson Mandela and his remarkable
life," Viking President Clare Ferraro said in a statement.
The life and beliefs of La Grange were transformed after
she started working for Mandela in 1994.
Although she began as a typist, La Grange, 43, went on to
become his trusted assistant and worked for Mandela until his death in December
at the age of 95.
She accompanied Mandela on trips abroad and was with him
when he met world leaders and celebrities.
She will donate a portion of the royalties from the book
to the Nelson Mandela Foundation to further his legacy.
Mandela's autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, was published in 1994.
The book was adapted into the 2013 film of the same name
starring British actor Idris Elba as Mandela.
