TRACKS Makes DSM's Frankfurt Hot List

This year, when the Doris S. Michaels Literary Agency took a handful of books with them to the Frankfurt Book Fair, prepared to accept offers for translation rights. One of the books on their “Hot List” was TRACKS.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights, and licenses worldwide. More than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, 299,000 visitors and over 10,000 journalists.

Here is the announcement attendees at the fair read about the novel in stories:

Eric D. Goodman


Atticus Books (World English – Summer 2011)

A Tarantino-style LOVE ACTUALLY meets literary fiction — the reader journeys by train from Baltimore to Chicago via the perspectives of a diverse array of passengers.

As a result, the novel in stories might be translated into other languages in the near future! In the meantime, look for the English release of TRACKS in Summer 2011.

Put TRACKS on your “hot list” too. Visit http://www.writeful.blogspot.com/ for more news on TRACKS as it becomes available.
