Jane Lawson Acquires The Fat Years By John Chan For Doubleday

Jane Lawson, Editorial Director of Doubleday, has acquired world rights in a ‘Chinese 1984′ from Marysia Juscziewicz at the Peony Literary Agency. The Fat Years, by John Chan, follows a writer, obsessed with detective stories, on a quest to uncover the events of a month mysteriously absent from official Chinese records. Currently causing a sensation in Hong Kong, this futuristic novel is banned in mainland China due to the uncomfortable reminder it provides of recent incidences of information control by the government.

Doubleday will publish in Summer 2011.
