    Susanna Lea Associates and David Godwin Associates have now joined forces to sell their foreign and North American rights, with DGA enjoying the benefit of our offices in Paris and New York, as well as London. More details to follow.

  • PS from Paris by Marc Levy
    P.S. from Paris was published this September in the US. With over 1,900 reader reviews and an average of 4.2/5 stars, it has received raves from press and readers alike. 

  • The Geisha and the Banjo Player by Jérôme Hallier
    Set against the backdrop of the 1900 World's Fair in Paris, this extraordinary journey and tale of impossible love is reminiscent of Alessandro Baricco's Silk, Flammarion will publish in May 2018.

  • My Notebook by Eric Cantona
    The Manchester United legend succinctly shares his view of life through his own drawings and captions, with characteristic wit and wordplay. These notebooks are as funny as they are poetic and philosophical. Foremost, they're an ode to living, loving, sharing, and contemplation.

  • A Man's Life by Louisa Hall
    Ecco has acquired North American rights to Louisa Hall's brilliant new novel, A Man's Life. A fictional account of the life of Robert Oppenheimer, a central figure in some of the 20th century's biggest controversies, the novel explores the overlap between science and literature, fiction and biography, and begs the question: can we ever really know another person? Mondadori has preempted Italian rights.

  • Fugitive by Violaine Huisman
    Gallimard will publish this stunning debut in January, and rights have already gone to Fischer in Germany and Bompiani in Italy, and are under negotiation in Holland. The portrait of a beautiful, passionate, and mercurial Parisian woman, Fugitive is by turns shrewd, heart-breaking, and bitingly funny.

  • Constantinople by Baptiste Touverey
    The final manuscript is just in for this gripping story of love, conspiracy, and betrayal. Set against a historical backdrop, this is a modern and enthralling debut - Rome meets House of Cards. To be published in France in February 2018.

  • Same Player Shoots Again by Antoine Audouard
    "Five years ago, I woke up one sunny summer day, and the left side of my body was entirely paralyzed--in fact, the left side of the world was gone." This unusual memoir of a stroke survivor celebrates love, friendship, universal healthcare, endurance-and the silliness of it all. It belongs to a line of books that explore the silver lining behind life's toughest experiences, in the spirit of Jean-Dominique Bauby's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Will Schwalbe's The End of your Life Book Club. A painfully joyous and moving read.

  • The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy
    The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is Arundhati Roy's first novel since The God of Small Things. Sold in 36 languages to date. (On behalf of DGA).

  • Your Second Life Begins When You Realize that You Only Have One
    Susanna Lea Associates is representing English language and film rights on behalf of Editions Eyrolles for this hugely celebrated feel-good novel which has reached one million copies sold, over 60 weeks at the very top of the lists, and 31 international deals.
