Rights to Hawra Al Nadawi’s book sold in Denmark!
As a follow up on the previous post, concerning a very interesting interview given by Hawra al Nadawi to politiken in Denmark, I am happy to announce that the Danish rights of the young author’s book ‘Under the Copenhagen’s sky’, was acquired by C&K Forlag.
Written in Arabic, the book was nevertheless clearly addressing a Danish audience, as the author explicitly states in her interview. Describing the Arab emigrants’ lives, the author hoped to give an insight into the complexities of being different, and trying to fit it — something she in fact very well achieves in her first book.
For those of you who missed the first post, Hawra Al Nadawi was long-listed for the IPAF 2012 (the Arab Man Booker that will be awarded in March in Abu Dhabi).
