Pan Mac UK sells Jaku’s memoir in 22 languages

Pan Macmillan UK has sold rights in 22 languages to Holocaust survivor Eddie Jaku’s memoir The Happiest Man on Earth, with ‘multi-publisher auctions in many territories’, reports the Bookseller.

Pan Macmillan Australia published the book locally in August. Pan Macmillan UK will publish the book in the UK on 12 November.

Pan Macmillan UK associate publisher Sophie Brewer said: ‘In a year where all our relationships have had to be remote and book fairs have been moved to entirely digital affairs, it’s heartening and exciting to see a title that offers such hope being picked up by publishers around the world.’

‘The rights team have done an incredible job to re-create a Frankfurt “buzz” around this book while working away from each other and unable to meet their contacts face to face,’ said Brewer.
