New translation rights' sales for Susan Abulhawa, Maha Akhtar and Núria Esponellà

Three very different books by different authors, yet very strong women from Palestine, United States (with Lebanese and Indian origins) and Catalonia, will reach new audiences in more languages soon.


After having been sold into 20 languages, Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa will be also published in Thailand by Sanskrit Book and Bosnia by Bookline.


Maha Akhtar´s new book, The Lost Princess, written in English, has been sold to Roca Editorial to be first published in Spanish language, as it happened with her previous and bestselling book The Maharani’s Granddaugther.

Behind the Walls, by Núria Esponellà, is in its fourth reprint in Catalan since it was published at the end of 2009 and it has just been published in Spanish by Roca Editorial. Norwegian rights have been sold to Juritzen Forlag.
