Welcome to Jacaranda Agency

Jacaranda is a boutique literary agency working out of Singapore, India, and the UK. We represent a diverse list of fiction and nonfiction from across Asia, and in particular a growing list of fiction from South East Asia. Our list includes authors from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan. We also represent many authors from further afield, including from the US, UK, Kenya, and Australia, making us a truly international agency. More recently we have begun building a small, curated list of fiction in translation from South East Asia. We also represent a small number of translators.

I want to share about the contract that Norman and I recently signed for the US edition of Happy Stories, Mostly. It took a little more time partly because Norman requested some changes which were radically generous in terms of what the translator usually receives...

We're so excited to announce that we'll be publishing Norman Erikson Pasaribu's HAPPY STORIES, MOSTLY (trans. @TiffTsao)
