Noémi Szécsi’s The Finno-Ugrian Vampire in the US and Canada
We love it when our authors gain international recognition. Noémi Szécsi’s The Finno-Ugrian Vampire, translated by Peter Sherwood, was generating interest among agents and foreign publishers long before we published it in the UK in October 2012.
During European Literature Night at the British Library, Rosie Goldsmith, the BBC journalist, praised Noémi Szécsi’s The Finno-Ugrian Vampire as ‘funny, fresh, witty and clever’. Michael A. Morrison reviewed the novel in the latest issue of World Literature Today and called it ‘Most innovative, trenchant vampire tale… The Finno-Ugrian Vampire belongs at the top of your “must-read” list’.
We are delighted that the esteemed independent publisher Marion Boyars is publishing The Finno-Ugrian Vampire in the US and Canada in May this year. Marion Boyars has published among others: Elif Shafak, Kenzaburo Oe, Latife Tekin, Georges Bataille.
US-based vampires fans can meet Noémi Szécsi during the PEN World Voices Festival in New York, US on 3 and 4 May 2013.
