Two prizewinners sold

We're pleased to officially announce that two of our prizewinning books of 2015, Mathias Enard's Boussole and Boualem Sansal's 2084, have been sold and are forthcoming in English.

Boussole, which was awarded the prestigious Prix Goncourt 2015, focuses on the transformation of Western art and music in the nineteenth century through the characters of pretentious musicologist Franz Ritter and his great love, the fiercely intelligent Orientalist Sarah. It was published in France by Actes Sud and will be published in English by New Directions



Boualem Sansal's 2084 won the Grand Prix du roman de l'Academie francaise 2015. Sansal describes the totalitarian regime of a fictional country, Abistan, where religion is law and history barely exists. It was published in France by Gallimard and will be published in English by Europa Editions
