Turkey and Denmark acquire a feminist dystopia
Meanwhile, Johanna Sinisalo’s Prometheus Award-winning dystopian novel The Core of the Sun has just been sold in two territories, coinciding with its longlisting for the 2018 International Dublin Literary Award.
In Denmark, indie publisher Jensen & Dalgaard acquired the rights, and in Turkey rights sold to Ithaki Yayinlari. The prominent Turkish publisher of speculative and general fiction acquired Johanna’s topical dystopian novel, which has received a stream of great press attention since its publication in English:
“Margaret Atwood and Aldous Huxley get down with Carlos Castaneda in The Core of the Sun, an adventurous and original dystopian satire which isn’t likely to be forgotten in a hurry… It’s dark, biting, unlike anything you’ll read this year and, ultimately, a triumph,” The Herald (Scotland) wrote.
