I don't normally do much publishing trade news here on RSB (I do a bit more of that over at The Book Depository), but this is interesting (thanks Michael; via the BookSeller):

Quercus is backing Christopher MacLehose, former publisher of Harvill, to set up a separate publishing unit specialising in translated literary fiction.

MacLehose will acquire and edit around 10 titles a year, funded by Quercus. The titles will be published by Quercus under the joint MacLehose Press/Quercus imprint, beginning next autumn.

MacLehose headed up Harvill for 21 years, where his acquisitions included Haruki Murakami, Ismail Kadare, Peter Hoeg and Henning Mankell. MacLehose became editor-at-large of Harvill Secker at the start of 2004, and left the company in July.
