The Foghorn Echoes

Penguin Canada’s David Ross has acquired, as part of a two-book deal, in a pre-empt, Canadian English rights to Ramadan’s novel The Foghorn Echoes to be released in Summer 2022.

The novel begins in war-torn Syria, and follows a forbidden romance between two boys which culminates in a traumatic incident, the echoes of which reverberate through their adult lives in Vancouver and Damascus.

The deal was arranged by Rachel Letofsky of Cooke McDermid. Canongate’s Ellah Wakatama has also acquired U.K. and Commonwealth, excluding Canadian, rights, in an exclusive submission by Ron Eckel of Cooke International on behalf of Cooke McDermid.
