Jane Novak, publicity manager of Text Publishing, on upcoming Beauty is A Wound publication: “Both a crazy, dream-like tale of one woman who goes to remarkable lengths in order to survive and the history of one of closest neighbouring nations, this is one of the most astonishing pieces of fiction I’ve read in a long time and I’m incredibly excited about it.” Beauty is A Wound translated by Annie Tucker (original title: [Cantik Itu Luka]), will be published simultaneously by New Directions (US) and Text Publishing (Australia) in September.
