Tinder Press acquires Bishop début

Tinder Press has acquired a UK début by Australian author Stephanie Bishop.

Publisher Mary-Anne Harrington bought British Commonwealth rights, excluding Australia New Zealand, to The Other Side of the World from Airlie Lawson at Hachette Australia. 

The novel tells the story of a fractured marriage, and of a woman torn between two very different worlds when her family relocates from England to Australia in the 1960s.  

Harrington said: "This book crackles with a really special energy from the opening page. It brings the Cambridge fens and sweltering Perth to hugely vivid life, and is one of the bravest and most tender books about parenthood and marriage that I have come across. It is generating the most extraordinary excitement at Tinder Press and Hachette Australia, and our ambition with this novel is to really put Stephanie Bishop on the map as a major international literary talent."

Tinder Press will publish The Other Side of the World in hardback in August 2015, and Hachette Australia will publish in July 2015.
