New book by author of Border
Laura Barber at Granta has signed the new book from Kapka Kassabova, author of Border, the current Radio 4 Book of the Week. Granta has UK and Commonwealth rights from Alba Ziegler-Bailey at the Wylie Agency for publication in spring 2020.
To the Lake: A Macedonian Journey will be a "home-coming of sorts and a personal reckoning with a familial legacy" - Macedonia is the birthplace of Kassabova's grandmother - as well as a meditation on themes of ancestral inheritance and national identity.
Barber said: "Kapka Kassabova is never one to follow the beaten path in her non-fiction, but wherever she travels, she has a knack for seeking out places with stories to tell and telling them to her readers with inimitable vivacity and resonance. Line for line, I can think of few writers whose prose is as rich and addictive as Kapka's - it's a thrill to publish her."
