The Borough Press bags Bennett brace

The Borough Press commissioning editor Cassie Browne has signed two further novels from Andrea Bennett.

The author was signed by the HarperCollins imprint through its open submissions scheme.

Borough released Bennett’s début, Galina Petrovna’s Three-Legged Dog Story, in the UK in August, and the book has sold into five international territories.

The follow-ups - due in 2017 and 2019, with world rights acquired directly from Bennett - take place in Azoz, the Russian town which was the setting for Bennett’s début.
