Patrik Svensson’s The Gospel of Eels sells to 32 territories

Posted on 03/07/2019 in Rights sold

Patrik Svensson’s The Gospel of Eels, called the ‘book of the fair’ at the London Book Fair this spring, has now been sold to 32 territories.

The Gospel of the Eels is a remarkable exploration of the relationship between a father and son and their shared passion for eel fishing, woven together with an account of the cultural, mythological and scientific life of the world’s most mysterious and enigmatic fish. In a perfectly balanced and evocative narrative, written in alternating chapters, the reader learns both of the Svenssons’ complex father and son relationship through scenes of their eel catching adventures and of the development of humanity’s fascination with and knowledge of the fish itself, from Aristotle to Freud to the present.
