A WONDERFUL LIFE sold to France and Germany

We have thrilling news to share: the French and German rights of Frank Martela’s A WONDERFUL LIFE: Insights on Finding a Meaningful Existence have been sold. In Germany this brilliant book was acquired by Blessing Verlag, an imprint of Verlagsgruppe Random House GmbH. In France the publisher is Éditions Leduc.s  who will publish this under the imprint Alisio. A WONDERFUL LIFE has now been sold to 18 territories and was recently published in the U.S. by Harper Design.

I have been reading Frank Martela’s A WONDERFUL LIFE in one sitting, and think it is a very accessible, intelligent and also funny approach to the meaning of life throughout history and philosophy. Its conclusions are as smart as they are simple and we think that especially after the crisis we are facing now they will be most needed.
