Deal announcement: UK deal for THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES

Hot on the heels of the U.S./Canada deal for Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock's debut, it gives me tremendous pleasure to announce that THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES will be published in the U.K. by Faber. Alice Swan and Sarah Savitt have acquired Bonnie-Sue's book for Faber's children's and adult lists, which is testament, I believe, to its enormous power and appeal. 

International rights: UK Children's Third-generation Alaskan and former journalist for Alaska Public Radio Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock's THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES, interlocking stories set in 1970s Alaska, in which a girl misses her father, lost in a plane crash; her sister has a ruinous secret; and three young brothers have stowed away on a ferry that will put them all in danger, to Alice Swan and Sarah Savitt at Faber & Faber Children's, at auction, for publication in fall 2015, by Molly Ker Hawn of The Bent Agency.

Congratulations, Bonnie-Sue -- and Alice and Sarah, too!
