Three years ago I sat at a kitchen table in a one-room apartment in Leipzig and started the computer, for the first time as schøne agentur. What an adventure that awaited me! I have been met with incredible warmth and enthusiasm and am very grateful for all you avid readers in the North. Thank you for your friendship, your patience and your eagerness to find that next book project together with me. I can’t wait!
This endeavour would have been impossible without the immense support my German clients – Carl Hanser Verlag, Zsolnay & Deuticke, Kiepenheuer & Witsch, Galiani Berlin, S. Fischer Verlag, Dumont, Matthes & Seitz Berlin, C.H.Beck, DTV, Schöffling & Co., Verbrecher Verlag and Voland & Quist – gave me by entrusting me with their precious authors‘ works! Thank you for your trust, your positive feedback means everything, thank you!
As an agent you are always convinced that your authors should be read in every corner of the world – and no doubt that they should! Today, I would like to celebrate the projects I had the honor of putting on their feet in translations into Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish and Icelandic. Please join me: Here’s to the many more translations to come – skål !
