Bernhard Schlink's The Granddaughter has shot to #3 on the Spiegel bestseller list. We have just sold Czech rights to Euromedia and are negotiating Dutch, Greek and Russian rights.

Here are the first press quotes:
»The fact that Schlink leaves this question open will be highly credited.«
Tilman Spreckelsen / Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Frankfurt

»Schlink's The Granddaughter is a novel about the German-German past, a plea for cooperation, for exchange – as varied as opinions may be.«
Sabine Kleyboldt / Südwest Presse, Ulm

»Schlink once again presents a gripping relationship drama.«
Focus, Berlin

»In his new novel The Granddaughter, he picks up thematically from his most successful book: The Reader.«
Res Strehle / Tages-Anzeiger, Zürich

The Granddaughter is also featured in our new books podcast (in German).
