TRADE PAPERBACK ORIGINAL
URGENT GLOBAL THEME: All That Man Is was described as “emergency writing for our times” by the New York Times, and with this new book Szalay continues in this mode and turns his attention to migration.
AUDIENCE: For readers of Rachel Cusk’s Transit, Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies, Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Refugees, Tommy Orange’s There There, and Ottessa Moshfegh’s Homesick for Another World—a group of writers who perfectly capture and reflect the reality of the world from multiple viewpoints.
MAN BOOKER-SHORTLISTED AUTHOR (2016): Also a Telegraph Top 20 British Writer under 40 and one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists.
MAJOR EXPOSURE AHEAD OF PUBLICATION: Each story has been commissioned for BBC Radio 4 and will be broadcast in the UK on consecutive Sundays between October and December 2018—in the evening slot, which attracts on average one million listeners per episode.
PUBLISHING PARTNERS: Jonathan Cape (UK) will publish in December 2018, and Scribner (US) will publish in July 2019. Given Szalay’s acclaim in the UK, we can expect strong coverage ahead of Canadian publication.
Praise for David Szalay and Turbulence:
“What Turbulence shares with its predecessor is Szalay’s characteristically effortless prose, his ability to distil lives into vignettes, the sense of an author whose curiosity about his fellow humans is boundless.”—The Guardian
“Page by page…Szalay’s mixture of directness and withholding looks increasingly masterly.”—Financial Times
“A chilling achievement.”—Evening Standard
