NEW YORK (AP) — Delia Owens’ “Where the Crawdads Sing,” the million-selling novel about a young girl’s life in a North Carolina coastal marsh, is coming out in the U.S. in a Spanish-language edition.

Vintage Espanol, a Penguin Random House imprint, announced Monday that “La Chica Salvaje” (“wild girl” in English) will be published Oct. 29 as a paperback, e-book and audiobook.

“Where the Crawdads Sing” was released in August 2018 and has since sold more than 3 million copies, remaining so popular in hardcover that no English-language paperback has come out. Its many fans include actress Reese Witherspoon, who selected the novel for her book club.

Owens previously worked on such nonfiction books as “Cry of the Kalahari” and “The Eye of the Elephant,” co-written with then-husband Mark Owens.


This story has been corrected to show the title of the book is “Where the Crawdads Sing,” not “When the Crawdads Sing.”
