A for Authors Agency Ltd are delighted to announce that Sayantan Ghosh, Executive Editor at Simon & Schuster India, has acquired Awais Khan’s Someone Like Her from Annette Crossland at A for Authors Agency Ltd., for publication in India and the sub-continent in Autumn 2023 with a high-profile press and marketing campaign.
Sayantan Ghosh said: “I had the privilege of publishing Awais Khan’s debut novel, In the Company of Strangers, in the Indian subcontinent, and am delighted that we are working together once again. In my opinion, Someone Like Her is his most accomplished work so far which explores poignant and powerful themes about the human condition. Awais has managed to create some unforgettable characters yet again and it’s my firm belief that readers are going to remember them long after they have finished reading the book.”
Awais Khan said: “It gives me immeasurable joy to be working with S&S India again after In the Company of Strangers. Sayantan’s vision for the book matches my own and I couldn’t have asked for a better publisher. S&S India have made immense strides in Indian publishing and are now a bastion for publishing important and meaningful literature. It is an honour to be published by them.”
Annette Crossland said: “I am absolutely delighted to be working with Sayantan Ghosh and Simon & Schuster India again to publish Awais Khan’s incredible novel Someone Like Her. Without question they are the right publisher to champion this important and powerful book.”
Simon & Schuster India published Khan’s In the Company of Strangers (December 2019) to much critical acclaim in India and the sub-continent.
Someone Like Her is published in the UK by Orenda Books and in Audio by Isis Publishing.
