HIGHLY DECORATED: The HC edition was a Canadian national bestseller, a New York Times bestseller, and selected as a New York Times Editors’ Choice.
SUBJECT MATTER: For Kate fans, this is WWII meets Jackson Brodie. For everyone else, this is Le Carré authored by and starring a woman. It’s twisty, turny spy-novel perfection.
A GREAT COMPANION: Life After Life and A God in Ruins have collectively sold over 85,000 copies in Canada.
AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: Behind the Scenes at the Museum won the Whitbread (now Costa) Book of the Year, Case Histories was shortlisted for the Whitbread Novel Award, Life After Life won the Costa Novel Award, the Waterstones Author of the Year Award and was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and A God in Ruins also won the Costa Novel Award, making Kate the first author in history to land three Costa category awards.
STANDALONE STORY: Kate has made her way through her greatest World War II interests. In Life After Life,it was the London Blitz, and in A God in Ruins, it was the strategic bombing campaign. Though companions, they stood apart—just as Transcription does with her third interest, MI5.
STRONG PARTNERS: Transworld is publishing in the UK and Little, Brown is publishing in the US.
