Money to Burn and The Devil Book Pre-Empted by Jonathan Cape

The world English rights to Money to Burn and The Devil Book, Asta Olivia Nordenhof’s two first installments in her planned septology, have been pre-empted by Jonathan Cape.

Željka Marošević, Editorial director at Jonathan Cape, says the following:

“Reading Asta Olivia Nordenhof’s writing stopped me in my tracks. Her writing is intimate, but her canvas is vast. Her shape-shifting novels ask, how does money – our dependence on it and our desire for it – influence our lives, our decisions and the people we chose to love? To find out she takes us from a village in Denmark to a national disaster on the seas to a hotel room with the devil – and beyond. I can’t wait for English readers to discover her astonishing talents.”

Money to Burn will be published in the UK in July 2024, and The Devil Book in January 2025.
