German rights to We That Are Young to C.H. Beck Verlag

We are thrilled to announce that C.H. Beck Verlag snapped up the German rights for Preti Taneja’s debut novel We That Are Young. The book that has been published by Galley Beggar Press received nothing but praise and is longlisted for the Desmond Elliot Prize and Jhalak Prize and shortlisted for The Republic of Consciousness Prize.

We That are Young is a modern-day King Lear that burst with energy and beautifully measured rage. The Guardian said about the novel: ‘Brilliant… finally crafted…Taneja has given us that rarest of beasts, a page-turner that is also unabashedly political.’

And The Spectator calls the book ‘A masterpiece’.
