Emma Broughton, Head of Development at The Ink Factory: “‘Andrew’s stunning novel offers extraordinary potential for adaptation: its beguiling, complex characters, compulsive narrative, and extraordinary evocation of landscape, match absolutely, in sensibility and ambition, our commitment to create brilliant, bold, and thrilling drama.”


Andrew’s debut novel, ‘The Loney’ won the Costa First Novel Award and the British Book Awards Book of the Year, has been sold in twenty territories, and sold over 150,000 copies across all formats in the UK. A feature film is currently in development with Film4, with Ink Factory’s The Night Manager writer, David Farr, adapting.


The deal was brokered by Luke Speed of Curtis Brown Group on behalf of Lucy Luck of C+W Literary Agency. Published by John Murray on the 19th of October, the rights are sold to HMH in the US and in Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Brazil and Finland so far.
