Sweet deal struck for Harris' Sugar Money

Sweet deal struck for Harris' Sugar Money

Faber will publish Sugar Money, Jane Harris’ third novel, in October.

Editorial director Angus Cargill bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Jonny Geller at Curtis Brown in a “major” deal.

Based on a true story, Sugar Money is billed as a “heartbreaking trip into our troubled colonial past, [following] two slave brothers sent on a mission from Martinique to Grenada to recover the 42 slaves their master claims were stolen by English invaders”.
