Virago to launch YA list in 2013

From today's Bookseller:

Virago Modern Classics will launch a young adult list, with four books by Rumer Godden to be among its titles after the publisher acquired rights in 15 of her works.

[] "She is an incredible writer, and what is really special about her, particularly when one considers the era she was writing in, is what a contemporary sensibility she had; in her novels set in India especially, wherever her characters are from and whatever culture they belong to, their points of view are portrayed with sympathy and understanding."

Virago will begin publishing her titles in 2013, the same year the YA list launches.

You can read about Rumer Godden at her Literary Trust website.
