Alder House Books is delighted to share that our first title is scheduled to be published October 17, 2023.
Half a Cup of Sand and Sky is a heartwarming account of one woman’s search for love and belonging set against an intelligently rendered backdrop of the Iranian Revolution.
The novel was selected as a finalist for the PEN/Bellwether Prize and nominated for the Mslexia Novel Competition as well as the Bath Novel Award under the title By These Limbs.
Nadine Bjursten spent nearly a decade writing about, traveling in, and researching Iran, both its rich cultural history and its political history. Before that she was Managing Editor of the Washington, DC-based journal Arms Control Today, press officer at the Global Security Institute and well before that, editor of the La Paz-based newspaper Bolivian Times. She now lives in Lund, Sweden, with her husband and twin daughters.
