The Book of Mother
NA rights to Violaine Huisman début go to Scribner
Scribner has won NA rights to Violaine Huisman’s Fugitive, which continues to garner top praise in France. It has been shortlisted for the Prix Renaudot and rights have already gone to Fischer in Germany, Bompiani in Italy, De Geus in Holland and Hoja de Lata in Spain.
The portrait of a beautiful, passionate, and mercurial Parisian woman, Fugitive is by turns shrewd, heart-breaking, and bitingly funny.
