Transatlantic agency is beyond excited to share that acclaimed novelist and memoirist David Macfarlane’s ON SPORTS (Field Notes) and ROGER GILBEY, a new novel, has been acquired by Dan Wells at Biblioasis, in a two-book deal!

ON SPORTS chronicling the tension between Macfarlane’s love of athletics and his dismay at sports’ growing commercialization is slated for publication Spring 2024.

Deal by Samantha Haywood at Transatlantic Agency (world English). 

David Macfarlane’s family memoir, The Danger Tree, was described by Christopher Hitchens as “one of the finest and most intriguing miniature elegies that I have read in many a year.” Macfarlane’s novel, Summer Gone, was short-listed for the Giller Prize. Based on The Danger Tree, “The Door You Came In,” a two-man show (co-written and performed with Douglas Cameron) has been produced, to acclaim, from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Stratford, Ontario. Macfarlane lives in Toronto with his wife, the designer, Janice Lindsay.
