Publishing Perspectives is discussing Finnish Non-fiction!
We are very proud to share that Publishing Perspectives dedicated the intro of their rights roundup last week to Finnish Non-fiction from our agency! The article discussed how ” all things related to Finland and Finnish-ness” are especially in demand internationally and quoted our CEO Elina Ahlbäck saying ““It feels to me, that Finns do have something unique in their concepts for nonfiction, leadership, and personal growth.”
The segment discussed three of our non-fiction highlights, all of which had recent rights sales:
- Leadership as Mastery: The Finnish Way by Asko Känsälä, which is now sold to Estonia
- Gentle Power: A Revolution in How We Think, Lead, and Succeed Using the Finnish Art of Sisu by Emilia Elisabet Lahti, which was published by Sound True in the US early this year and has been sold to Thailand, China, and most recently to Latvia
- How Finland Survived Stalin From Winter War to Cold War, 1939-1950 by Professor Kimmo Rentola, which will be published by Yale University Press in the UK and US later this year and was sold to Greece and Poland recently.
If you are looking to enrich your list with a Finnish perspective, we have full English translations for all three titles for you to read!
