Comma sells rights in drone title

Comma Press has sold the German and American rights for Atef Abu Saif’s The Drone Eats With Me.

Beacon Press has acquired North American rights and German rights have been signed by Unionsverlag.

The book documents the siege that took place in Gaza in July and August 2014 through the diary entries of Palestinian writer Saif. His account of life on the Gaza strip has already received media coverage in publications as the New York Times, the Guardian and the Sunday Times.

Comma will publish the UK edition with a foreword by Noam Chomsky in May. The German edition is slated for release in September, with the North American edition set for spring 2016.
