PERLA to be published in the UK

A title from Haus Publishing's imprint specializing in Arabic literature, Arabia books.

I’ve just learned that Perla has found its way to a British publisher. HAUS Publishing of London has bought the rights to the novel, and anticipates releasing it as early as this July.

HAUS was founded in 2002 by Barbara Haus Schwepke, inspired by the suggestion of W.G. Sebald, who urged more space for translations of world literature into English. (As a translator myself, that’s enough to make my heart sing.)

HAUS has published in-depth bigraphies and histories, and in 2008 launched Arabia Books, which includes some of the biggest names in Arabic fiction, many translated into English for the first time.

At the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair, HAUS announced Swallow Editions, an initiative to support emerging writers from the Middle East, the voices of the Arab Spring.

I’m incredibly honored to join a press with such an inspiring commitment to globally significant literature.
