 THE WOLFMAN CLEANS UP


Shaun Ellis, widely known as 'the Wolfman' from the original National Geographic documentary, is writing the story of his extraordinary life and discoveries about wolfpack behaviour with best-selling author (and dog owner) Penny Junor. Rights were sold in the US in the New Year (Harmony) for $200,000 and were sold this week to Carole Tonkinson at HarperCollins in a six figure deal. Sally Riley of Aitken Alexander who handles the agency's translation rights has made pre-emptive sales to Holland (Forum), Italy (Rizzoli) and Germany (Arkana).

 TRIUMPHANT RECEPTION OF THE BERLIN WALL IN GERMAN TRANSLATION


Frederick Taylor's much praised magisterial history of the Berlin Wall, originally published by Bloomsbury in 2006, and sold in fourteen languages, was finally published in German last week. Struggling through snowstorms, closed airports, six hour queues and dense fog to meet his Berlin interviewers, the bi-lingual historian was universally praised:
 
'  a thrilling, great and worthy book for the anniversary year of the fall of the Wall'
 
' the British historian Frederick Taylor has written a standard work on the Berlin Wall - as gripping as a thriller'
 
For a British historian to elicit such praise from a highbrow German press, of Germany's own recent history is remarkable.
