Congratulations Ali Lowe – world rights sold in a two book deal

Hodder & Stoughton have acquired world rights to Ali Lowe’s debut novel The Trivia Night  in a two book deal.

The Trivia Night is set on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and tells the story of four couples at a school charity trivia night and the ensuing fallout when they make a reckless pact to swap partners for the evening.

Hodder’s publisher Kimberley Atkinson said: “I can’t wait to publish the excellent The Trivia Night – a novel which feels a little like Liane Moriarty meets ‘Desperate Housewives’. It’s such a fun, clever and spiky debut with an addictive premise…”

Publication is scheduled for 2022.

Ali Lowe is a graduate of the 2019 Writing a Novel program in Sydney.
