Monique Roffey working on new novel

28th July 2010

The next novel by Monique Roffey has been acquired by publisher Simon & Schuster UK.

Roffey, who was shortlisted for the 2010 Orange Prize for Fiction with The White Woman on the Green Bicycle, will launch her new book - provisionally entitled Romany - in spring 2012.

The book's events take place at sea and follow a man who sets sail with his daughter to make sense of the loss of his wife, home and baby son in a tropical flood.

Francesca Main, Simon & Schuster senior commissioning editor, said her firm has 'real passion' for Roffey's writing and is 'thrilled' to be publishing her next novel.

'I have no doubt that it will be as unique, compelling, sensuous and resonant as her previous novels and I can't wait for us to publish it,' she added.

Despite receiving critical acclaim for The White Woman on the Green Bicycle, Roffey was beaten to the Orange Prize for Fiction by Barbara Kingsolver, who clinched the accolade with The Lacuna.
