Deal Watch: K Sello Duiker's Novels to be Translated into German, French, Norwegian and Arabic

The Quiet Violence of DreamsThirteen CentsThe Hidden StarAlert! This notice about the late K Sello Duiker’s novels from Isobel Dixon via Facebook:

Strong foreign interest in the late K. Sello Duiker’s novels has resulted in sales of THIRTEEN CENTS to France (Editions Yago), Norway (Solum) and Egypt (GEBO) as well as of THE QUIET VIOLENCE OF DREAMS to Germany (Das Wunderhorn).

THE QUIET VIOLENCE OF DREAMS, which was longlisted for IMPAC Literary Award 2003, is a daring novel giving a startling account of contemporary South African urban culture. From the corridors of the Valkenberg mental hospital, to the strange comfort of the male escort agency he works for, Tshepho’s story is raw, powerful and original. It was first published in South Africa in English by Kwela Books in 2001 and was also translated into Dutch by De Geus in 2003.
