NATALIE TAN'S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE
Berkley Invests in Lim’s Debut
After winning two books at auction for six figures, Cindy Hwang at Berkley will publish Roselle Lim’s debut novel, Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune. Jenny Bent at the Bent Agency brokered the deal, which includes a second, currently untitled novel, for U.S., Canadian, and translation rights. Berkley said Natalie Tan, slated for summer 2019, is “a heartwarming novel of magical realism in which an aspiring chef returns home to San Francisco following her estranged mother’s death and must master a series of enchanted recipes in order to revive her family’s old Chinatown restaurant.” The second book in the deal is scheduled for summer 2020.
