Linnea Axelssons AEDNAN sold to Knopf Doubleday!

Posted on 14/10/2021 in Rights sold

We are very pleased to announce that Knopf Doubleday in the US has purchased World English rights to Linnea Axelsson’s incredible novel-in-verse AEDNAN. The publisher will publish the book in the autumn of 2022. John Freeman, Executive Editor at Knopf, says that both him and his entire team were mesmerized by the story.

AEDNAN is the story of two Sami families, whose fate reflects the modern history of the Sami from the beginning of the 20th century to our time.

The book won the August Prize 2018 and the rights have previously been sold to Finland. It is gratifying that such an important story is given greater scope through an English translation. AEDNAN will be translated by Saskia Vogel in collaboration with the author.
