Picador acquires Kent’s next two novels

Pan Macmillan’s Picador imprint has acquired ANZ rights to Hannah Kent’s next two novels.

Picador publisher Geordie Williamson told Books+Publishing the deal ‘gives Hannah time and freedom to follow her nose’. ‘After the success of Burial Rites and The Good People, she has surely earned the right to do so,’ said Williamson.

UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding ANZ) for Kent’s third novel have been sold to Picador UK through Curtis Brown.

No details or publication dates for the books have been set.
