Pre-Frankfurt buzz: sixth deal for Miika Nousiainen

With the Frankfurt book fair around the corner, the sales are heating up: Miika Nousiainen’s Roots, a hilarious and touching feel-good novel about family and dentistry was sold in the Czech Republic to XYZ (Albatros Media).

XYZ Editor, Jitka Hanušová was extremely happy about the acquisition of Roots: “This novel is a great example of a genuine distinctive Finnish humour – crazy, absurd yet touching at the same time. We believe that Czech and Finnish people share a similar sense of humour and that our readers will appreciate it and will have a great time with this wonderful book.”

We hope to see you in Frankfurt! Find us at tables 31L and 32L in the LitAg (hall 6.3) and click here for our rights guides!
