Cynan Jones new short novel to be published by Granta.


Online book news company The Bookseller announced today that the executive publisher of Granta Books, Philip Gwyn Jones, has acquired the world English language rights of The Dig, a short novel, by Welsh author Cynan Jones.

Jones' next, unwritten novel was also said to be included in the deal, financial details of which were undisclosed.

The Dig is set in a stark rural setting and follows the fates of a badger-baiter and a disconsolate farmer.

Granta will reportedly publish the title in early 2014.
