Virago launches Young Adult list

Virago Modern Classics will launch a young adult list, with four books by Rumer Godden to be among its titles after the publisher acquired rights in 15 of her works.

Senior editor Donna Coonan acquired British Commonwealth rights, including Canada, in Godden’s novels through Anna Davis at Curtis Brown.

Coonan said: "She is an incredible writer, and what is really special about her, particularly when one considers the era she was writing in, is what a contemporary sensibility she had; in her novels set in India especially, wherever her characters are from and whatever culture they belong to, their points of view are portrayed  with sympathy and understanding."

Virago will begin publishing her titles in 2013, the same year the YA list launches.
