Saudi-based Tashkeell has snapped up Arabic rights in Paul Lynch’s Booker-winning Prophet Song.  In addition, the author’s agent Simon Trewin of London-based Simon Trewin Creative said this week that 15 foreign deals were already in place “with more to come”.

In the US Atlantic Monthly Press has brought forward publication from 12 to 5 December.

Trewin established his independent agency in 2019 and explains: “After thirty years working in some of the biggest agencies in the world I launched my own boutique agency  to represent authors, brands and entrepreneurs in the areas of art, culture, digital, literature, and live events.

“I am partnering with the best agencies worldwide on a case-by-case basis to bring foreign, US and film/tv rights to the very forefront of the narrative.

“I have a deliberately very small client list as I want to bring real focus to a scattergun industry but do please be in touch if you want to start a conversation!”
