Pan Mac's Morley goes Dutch with polymath

Pan Mac's Morley goes Dutch with polymath

Pan Mac has pre-empted a new title by Hugh Aldersey-Williams.

Georgina Morley, non-fiction editorial director, acquired world rights to Dutch Light: Christiaan Hughes and the Making of Science in Europe from Patrick Walsh at PEW Literary.

Morley called Aldersey-Williams “that rare beast: a polymathic author who can make an enthralling narrative out of complex ideas in elegant prose”.

The title is slated for September 2020.
