This month we publish The Facts of Life by Paula Knight. A clarion call to recognise that parenting isn’t the be-all and end-all of family life, this powerful graphic memoir is already winning hearts and minds, and the acclaim of writers including Aminatta Forna, Linda Newbery, Mary Talbot and Ian Williams and Professor of Gynaecology Arri Coomarasamy.

A Thousand Coloured Castles follows in April: Gareth Brookes’ gloriously crayoned follow-up to his prize-winning The Black Project, is described by one reader as ‘Wallace and Gromit in the time of Brexit’. It is, as Paul Gravett says, ‘revelatory’ and its author ‘a true modern visionary — you have not read his like before.’ 

In May we publish Nicholas Royle’s dazzlingly audacious new novel, An English Guide to Birdwatching. Praised by Robert Macfarlane as ‘a compelling investigation of the nature of writing and the writing of nature’, it combines a page-turning story about literary theft, adultery and ambition with a poetic and moving investigation into our relationship to birds and the environment.


We’re celebrating Men Like Air, Tom Connolly’s ‘epic love letter to New York City’ (Evie Wyld), which has been selected for W H Smith’s 2017 ‘Fresh Talent’ promotion.


The extraordinary debut by barrister-turned-writer Jules Grant, We Go Around in the Night and Are Consumed by Fireis being adapted for TV by award-winning independent production company Leopard Drama, creators of Missing, The Holding, An Englishman in New York and other hit programmes.
