We are thrilled to let you know that the first TWO deals for SANG by Elina Pitkäkangas have been closed!
The YA fantasy title was sold this week to Indigo Kitap in Turkey and in a two-book pre-empt deal to Straarup & Co in Denmark! The deals were closed by Elsa Lindström and Anna Kappauf respectively, both at Elina Ahlback Literary Agency.
|This news follows the recent nomination of SANG for the Topelius Award, the jury of which praised the book:
“The dystopian novel upholds a beautiful and dark atmosphere in the state of Fusang. Sang is an epic story about a youngster trying to fight against the impossible circumstances of a totalitarian state. Kong Dawei joins the rebels, and breathtaking events follow one another. Pitkäkangas’ skill to conjure with believable details a whole world is enchanting. Our choices create a chain which not only joins us together, but also in the end defines who and what we are. Sang is a story about love, but above all it is a story about morale: all the things we are ready to do for one another.”
