Europa Editions

Europa Editions We are an independent New York-based publisher. Visit www.europaeditions.com for more information.
Founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri (owner-publishers of Rome-based Edizioni E/O), Europa Editions is an independent publisher based in New York City. Europa is one of the leading publishers of international fiction in the United States and has gained a reputation for publishing literary and crime fiction by American, British, and Australian authors.

Europa Editions is an independent publisher of quality fiction. The company was founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri, who are also the owners and publishers of the Italian press, Edizioni E/O. The idea behind the creation of Europa Editions was to capitalize on Edizioni E/O’s deep roots in European publishing to bring fresh international voices to the American and British markets and to provide quality editions that have a distinct look and consistently high levels of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate but also to inform and enlighten. In 2013, the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association awarded Europa Editions its Paperback publication of the Year award. Europa’s New York office is directed by Editor-in-chief Michael Reynolds. Europa Editions’ London office is directed by Daniela Petracco. In North America, we are distributed by Penguin Random House and Penguin Random House Canada. In the U.K. and Ireland, we are distributed by Turnaround Publisher Services. Notable successes at Europa include: Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog (translated by Alison Anderson), which spent almost a year on the New York Times Bestseller list and the IndieBound bestseller list; Jane Gardam’s Old Filth, named a notable book of the year by the New York Times; Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan novels, including My Brilliant Friend, a New York Times bestseller; and, Alina Bronsky’s The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine (translated by Tim Mohr), a Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and San Francisco Chronicle favorite read of the year in 2011. Europa Editions publishes about thirty-five titles a year. In its first ten years, the company has published books by authors from twenty-six different countries, making it one of the leading US publishers of international fiction. In a 2013 interview in the Italian industry periodical Leggere:tutti, founder Sandro Ferri said the company was “born with the intention to create bridges between cultures.” Among authors published by Europa, Europa counts two ABA IndieBound bestsellers, four New York Times bestsellers, three Booker Prize-shortlisted novels, five New York Times Editors' Picks, three New York Times Notable Books of the Year, two Goncourt Prize winners, one German Book Prize winner, and two winners of The Strega Prize for Fiction. We invite you to browse our growing list of international fiction and non-fiction, and sign up for our monthly newsletter, in which you'll find information on new releases, reviews, author tours, and other Europa Editions news, all available on our website.

Mission: The motivation behind our publishing endeavors is as much cultural as it is business-related. We are convinced that the dialogue between nations and cultures has never been more important and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain but also its capacity to inform and enlighten readers.

A Girl Returned

Happy #PubDay to Donatella Di Pietrantonio's "exquisite" (Publishers Weekly) novel, A GIRL RETURNED, translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein (Ferrante's translator)! In his Washington Post review, John Domini praises Di Pietrantonio's "lively way with a phrase" and "fine instinct for detail."

⭐️"A gripping, deeply moving coming-of-age novel; immensely readable, beautifully written, and highly recommended."— Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Told with an immediacy and a rare expressive intensity that has earned it countless adoring readers and one of Italy’s most prestigious literary prizes, A Girl Returned marks the English-language debut of an extraordinary literary talent.

This is

as we travel through
Scandinavia. Two
flights today. Sitting
at the gate in Oslo,
soon in Stockholm.
Yet all the while I am
Naples, drawn by the
pen of Elena Ferrante,
and guided by her
superb translator Ann
Goldstein. How wonderful
are the worlds we enter
through the words of
others, the alchemical
power of the Book.
