Siri Helle to Granta
Granta Books has secured World English rights to Siri Helle’s book The Hand Made Tale after an auction.
We are proud to welcome Nazneen Khan-Østrem and her brilliant book “We are the Londoners – among gangsters, rabbis, oligarchs, rebels and other children of the British empire” to Northern Stories.
Who were the people who built this glamorous, dirty, infinite metropolis, and what is it about their descendants that makes London such an exhilarating experience today? We are the Londoners offers both a historical backdrop and insight about the British Empire and the immigration that has created London’s unique fabric. There is no doubt: every impression you have had about this city will change as you read this book.
The book is just out and has already gotten a raving review in Dagbladet: “Nazneen Khan-Østrem has written the ultimate book about Great Britain’s capitol…It is a history book, a travel guide, a gastronomic walk with dishes from around the world, a reflective sociological analysis, a story about music, theater and visual arts, and not least a driving good story (…) Never have I read a book that to such a degree takes the pulse of a big city.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Nazneen Khan-Østrem’s higly praised book about immigrant London has been acquired in an auction by Little, Brown’s Robinson imprint.
The renowed MIT Press has just bought World English rights to Erik Martiniussen’s The War against Bacteria.
Therese Tungen is on the shortlist for the European Union Prize for Literature 2020 for her book Love, or something like it.
Erik Martiniussen has just published his new book The War against Bacteria to critical acclaim from a collective Norwegian Press. With two newspapers giving it the highest score possible, 6 out of 6, and the third calling it one of the best books of the year (already) – this surely is a fantastic launch.
