Fourth Estate Australia has been successful in its bid to publish The Anchoress by an exciting new Australian – and soon to be international – literary star in the making, Robyn Cadwallader.
It all started early last year with a tweet by literary agent Gaby Naher: ‘Desperately seeking a great Australian novel – broad canvas, intelligent and ambitious.’ Some six months later, Gaby was presiding over a heated auction for The Anchoress, an extraordinary story set in thirteenth-century England within the confines of a stone cell measuring seven paces by nine. Tiny in setting, but universal in themes, it is a wonderful, wholly compelling fictional achievement.
With Australian rights acquired by HarperCollins, alongside international partners Faber in the UK, Farrar Straus & Giroux in the US, with French rights sold to Denoel/Gallimard, The Anchoress will be published worldwide in early 2015.
Robyn Cadwallader is a Canberra-based writer and scholar who has published numerous, prize-winning short stories and reviews, as well as a book of poetry and a non-fiction book concerning attitudes to virginity and women in the Middle Ages.
