Scribe is excited to announce that it has acquired a new novel by the acclaimed Uruguayan author Fernanda Trías, to be translated by Heather Cleary.
Set in the midst of a plague brought on by ecological disaster, Pink Slime is extraordinarily prescient, having been written before the COVID-19 pandemic. As its narrator tries to flee the country — to escape from food shortages, blackouts, and police patrols — she must confront a failed marriage, a strained mother-daughter relationship, and her feelings about looking after a child who is not her own. The fragility of life and our relationships is explored in this modern classic, lauded by Spanish critics and recently awarded the prestigious Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Prize.
UK editorial director Molly Slight and ANZ associate publisher Marika Webb-Pullman bought WEL rights from Paula Canal at Indent Agency.
