The Bookseller: Sandstone Press has bought World English rights to Anders Bortne’s Sleepless. And it is also just sold in Denmark to Gads Forlag.

May 24, 2019

We love waking up to good news! The Bookseller just featured the news about Anders Bortne’s non-ficton book about Sleeplessness is going to available around the world in English. The UK publisher Sandstone Press has aquired the rights and Editorial Director Moira Forsyth says this about the book:
“There can scarcely be anyone in our hectic, internet-obsessed world who hasn’t suffered from insomnia at some time, but it has rarely been written about so engagingly as by Anders Bortne in Sleepless. I’m absolutely delighted that Sandstone Press is to be the English language publisher of his witty and fascinating investigation into sleep – and the lack of it.”
And if that isn’t enough, Gads Forlag in Denmark has just bought the Danish rights.

Congratulations, Anders!
