Poland’s Book Market Has Big Potential, Many Challenges
The Polish literary trade is currently having a tough time, battling a combination of old and new challenges. Although thirty-eight million people is a sizable demographic for which to cater, it is an unpredictable market. Many international top performers, particularly high literary authors, are not greeted with the same warm reception by this generally commercially-minded audience.
The bestseller lists are currently topped by EL James (whose trilogy has sold 1.7 million copies including ebook and audio), and guerrilla artist, author and illustrator Keri Smith.
