Harvill Secker (an imprint at VINTAGE) is excited to announce the acquisition of the long-awaited novel from Erin Morgenstern, The Starless Sea. Morgenstern’s previous novel, The Night Circus (published in 2011) sold over 3 million copies worldwide and was translated into an impressive 37 languages.
In the UK, the book stormed into the bestseller list on publication, and was nominated for the Guardian First Book Award, the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Galaxy Book Awards. It also spent several months on the New York Times bestseller list. A feature film of The Night Circus is currently in development with Lionsgate, along with a stage play. The Starless Sea contains all the hallmarks of Morgenstern’s critically acclaimed first novel – magic, mystery and inimitable imagination – and brings them to life in a richly layered and entirely new story.
