Lee Rourke’s new novel, GLITCH, sold to Dead Ink Books
Monday 15th October 2018
Lee Rourke’s third novel, GLITCH, tells the story of L-J who after spending two decades in the US is returning home to his native Suffolk to visit family and his childhood coastal home. It’s a novel of grief, family, and ideas. It’s a novel about embracing those irregularities – the recurring glitch – that seep into every aspect of life, and seeing the beauty in them.
Nathan Connolly bought UK & Commonwealth (excluding Canadian) rights from Donald Winchester and publication is scheduled for October, 2019.
‘I first worked with Lee on our anthology, Know Your Place, and we immediately hit it off. We’re both from similar Manchester backgrounds and see completely eye-to-eye on publishing and literature. I’m really honoured to have Lee’s work represented by Dead Ink and I think this will be a great partnership.’ – Nathan Connolly, Dead Ink
‘I feel truly honoured to be joining such a modern, forward-thinking publisher who are not afraid to take risks and are most definitely in love with Literature. Dead Ink choose their authors carefully and make beautiful-looking books unlike no others. It’s the best possible fit for me.’ – Lee Rourke
