Nicolás Rodríguez Galvis

Nicolás Rodríguez Galvis is an editor at Editions Métailié, in France, a 40-year-old publishing house with a list that could be resumed by the following motto: "Books to live passionately". Before this, Nicolás worked as a rights manager at Editions Gallimard, as a translator (of authors like Guillaume Apollinaire, Denis Diderot, Jacques Vaché, and Oliver Sacks), and as an amateur yet willing Thursday-night football player.

As an acquisitions editor at Métailié, Nicolás mainly focuses on foreign literary fiction, narrative non-fiction, and thrillers. He has recently acquired works from Camila Sosa Villada (Argentina) and Al Alvarez (England). Some of the authors published by Métailié in the last years include Selva Almada (Argentina), Horacio Castellanos Moya (El Salvador), Mia Couto (Mozambique), Anna Seghers (Germany), Arnaldur Indridason (Iceland), Leonardo Padura (Cuba), and Scottish authors like Alasdair Gray, James Kelman, John Burnside, Louise Welsh, Chris Brookmyre, and Jenni Fagan.
