05.09.12 | Joshua Farrington
Atlantic Books has bought the rights to a new novel from Dutch writer Herman Koch, whose book The Dinner it published in August.
Ravi Mirchandani bought world English rights, excluding Australia and New Zealand, to Summerhouse With Swimming Pool from Uta Matten at Ambo/Anthos and plans to publish in 2014.
In the Netherlands, the novel, which revolves around a doctor involved in a malpractice suit, has already sold 300,000 copies, Atlantic said. The book will be translated by Sam Garrett, who also translated The Dinner. That book has sold more than 1m copies internationally.
Thus far rights to Summerhouse With Swimming Pool have been sold in 10 languages.
