Bloomsbury acquires Campbell novel
06.10.11 | Charlotte Williams
Bloomsbury has acquired a literary novel by a former policewoman and author of police novels for Hodder & Stoughton, Karen Campbell.
Fiction editorial director Helen Garnons-Williams bought UK and Commonwealth rights, including Canada, to This is Where I Am, from Lisa Moylett at Coombs Moylett Literary Agency. Bloomsbury will publish in spring 2013.
The novel tells the story of a Somalian refugee and a Glaswegian widow, and about the friendship that develops between them.
Garnons-Williams said: "Funny, painful, and gripping it's a novel that will open your eyes and take your breath away."
