Literary agent David Godwin recently placed TLC client Neamat Imam with Penguin India. Neamat’s novel, ‘The Black Coat’, will be published in 2013. Neamat first came through TLC in July 2011 and had an editorial assessment by Kavita Bhanot, who has worked as an editor with India’s first Literary Agency and is the editor of the short story collection Too Asian, Not Asian Enough (Tindal Street Press, 2011). Kavita writes, “I was deeply impressed by Neamat Imam’s novel, which I found to be urgent and powerful. I can’t think of many contemporary novels that have an ambitious canvas, that make political, social commentary, but also touch your heart because they are written with compassion, experience, wisdom and psychological depth.”
TLC is delighted for Neamat and we look forward to having a copy on display here at the TLC office.
