I mentioned some of this in an earlier post, but it’s worth mentioning again: HarperVoyager has signed Emmi Itäranta for a two-book English rights deal in UK, US, and Australia. The first, her debut novel, Memory of Water (Teemestarin kirja) will be published in the UK next spring.
Teemestarin kirja has also sold to Germany for publication by Reihe Hanser planned in 2014.
This is great news! I’m happy that one more excellent Finnish book is finding its way to a much larger audience.
Update: the book has also been sold to the Czech Republic, to Plus.
