We are so excited to announce that the Feminist Press will publish Soula Emmanuel’s debut novel Wild Geese in North America in Fall 2023. Wild Geese is the story of an Irish trans woman living in Scandinavia who unexpectedly reconnects with her first love over the course of one fateful weekend, reigniting memories she thought she’d left behind.

Soula Emmanuel is a trans writer who was born in Dublin to an Irish mother and a Greek father. She was a participant in the Madeleine Milburn Mentorship programme for 2021-22, during which she developed Wild Geese.

Wild Geese will be be published in the UK by Footnote Press in March 2023 and is already making waves with early readers:

‘Soula Emmanuel’s prose is breathtaking: searingly sharp, deliciously funny, profound. Wild Geese is a beautiful and devastating read. An extraordinary debut. I loved this deeply intelligent and emotionally powerful novel.’

Danielle MacLaughlin

‘Wild Geese is heartfelt, thought provoking and beautifully crafted. Soula Emmanuel is a phenomenal talent.’

Congratulations, Soula!
