Pulitzer Winner Harding Secures UK Publication Deal

Random House UK imprint William Heinemann has won the rights to publish Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Harding’s novel, Tinkers. The deal follows a seven-publisher auction bid brokered by literary agent Kent Wolff of Global Literary Management on behalf of Erika Goldman of Bellevue Literary Press. Bellevue Literary Press is the US independent press who published the first US edition of Harding’s novel.
Paul Harding was the surprise winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his novel, Tinkers; a powerful celebration of life in which a New England father and son, through suffering and joy, transcend their imprisoning lives and offer new ways of perceiving the world and mortality.
Harding’s agent, Ellen Levine has also managed to secure a deal for his next two novels with Heinemann UK, including his forthcoming novel Enon due out later this year. Deals should also be concluded in the coming weeks for Italian, German and French translated editions.
