20.07.12 | Lisa Campbell
Nadifa Mohamed, author of Black Mamba Boy, has moved from HarperCollins to Simon & Schuster for her second novel, set in 1980s Somalia.
Clare Hey, S&S senior commissioning editor, signed UK and Commonwealth rights to the novel and one more via Ben Mason of Fox Mason Ltd. Mason also placed US rights with FSG.
Hey said: "I was hugely proud to publish Black Mamba Boy at HarperCollins and am delighted that Nadifa and I will be working together again. Her second novel is truly stunning, and marks her out as a writer of huge talent and a with big future."
Mason said: "I'm over the moon to see Nadifa Mohamed and Clare Hey reunited over such a fiery, beautiful and poised novel."
S&S will publish in hardback/ e-book in July 2013, with a paperback release the following summer.
