Karen Fortunati’s debut THE WEIGHT OF ZERO released last week and while she was out on book tour we inked our first foreign rights deal. Hungarian rights have sold to Könyvmolykepzö!
From Publishers Marketplace:
INTERNATIONAL RIGHTS: CHILDREN’S
Hungarian rights to debut author Karen Fortunati’s THE WEIGHT OF ZERO about a teenager with bipolar disorder who is contemplating suicide, and her march towards – and struggle to recognize – better mental health, supported by a network of family, doctors and friends, to Könyvmolykepzö in a nice deal by Milena Kaplarevi? of Prava i prevodi, on behalf of Sara Megibow at kt literary.
In addition to inking this deal and prepping for the Frankfurt Book Fair, glowing reviews have been pouring in. We wanted to share this one – it’s personal and moving and says THE WEIGHT OF ZERO, “…just gets it.”
Congratulations Karen and thanks to all you wonderful readers – here and soon in Hungary!
