One of the most delightful and surprising aspects of getting published has been the whole whirlwind of foreign rights. Six different publishing houses have bought the rights to translate The Kitchen Daughter into six different languages and publish those versions. And yesterday I found out that the Dutch version will be hitting shelves in the Netherlands in November 2011.
Here's the link to the fall catalog from my Dutch publisher, The House of Books.
And -- wow! Not only is there a two-page spread on De keukendochter, but they also used that beautiful cover image for the inside front cover of the catalog. And even for those who don't speak Dutch -- like me! -- it's an arresting layout. So exciting to see.
