Ebury Fiction Publishing Director Gillian Green has bought World All Language rights to comedian Shappi Khorsandi’s debut novel from Off The Kerb Productions.
Nina is Not OK, a dark, funny coming of age novel about a young teenage girl’s struggle to overcome addiction, will be published in July 2016.
Shappi Khorsandi said: ‘This opportunity to let Nina out of my head and on to the pages of a book has been a great relief. She was causing me no end of grief. But now she is out, with my help and with the support of wonderful Ebury, Nina can flourish and take us with her on her adventure. Heaven help us.‘
Nina is Not OK will be published in hardback in July 2016.
You can also get hold of it as an audiobook. Here’s an extract (the first chapter) read by Shappi.
