In recent years the number of O'Brien Press books sold into translation has increased significantly - an indicator of their quality and broad appeal. Many of the rights sales are negotiated at the Frankfurt, London and Bologna book fairs, which we attend annually, with the assistance of Culture Ireland. Our interests are also represented by a number of literary agents throughout the world. Here is a list of titles that have been sold into translation or co-edition with other publishers. Note that this does not include any deal currently under negotiation, so watch this space for developments!
