Survey of rights sold in 2021

Our regular annual list of rights sold for translation of books by our authors appears in this article.


 

Let us begin with a recapitulation of the year just gone. In 2020, we agreed the sale of translation rights for 60 books. The table-topper in this regard was Alena Mornštajnová, with eight books, closely followed by Pavel Čech and Petra Soukupová (seven each). With four books each, Petra Dvořáková, Viktorie Hanišová and Jiří Kratochvil, too, were high scorers.

Traditional destinations for Czech books such as Macedonia, Bulgaria and Poland have again been joined by the German-speaking world; books by Viktorie Hanišová, Jiří Hájíček and Alena Mornštajnová will this year appear in German. Translation rights to books by Viktorie Hanišová, Nela Rywiková and Petra Soukupová were sold for Italian.
