It seems like only yesterday – in fact, full disclosure, it was yesterday – I posted here about how the Nobel literature prize win for Kazuo Ishiguro was boosting his, and his publishers’, bottom line with renewed interest in the Ishiguro backlist and lots of reprinting going on.
Today The Bookseller reports that was just the tip of the iceberg.
There was “mass euphoria” at Ishiguro’s literary agency Rogers, Coleridge and White on Thursday, as they clocked up their first Nobel winning client, and no wonder.

Not only have there been (so far) twenty renewal deals, but new deals have been signed in places as improbable as Armenia and Mongolia, adding to the fifty or so countries Ishiguro was already published in.
