This month we publish A Thousand Coloured Castles: 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.’
Next month we publish Nicholas Royle’s dazzlingly audacious new novel, An English Guide to Birdwatching. Praised by Alison Moore as ‘a daring novel, both wickedly playful and deeply touching’, 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.
In August, we launch S.V.Berlin’s The Favourite, an utterly immersive novel of estranged siblings, the untidiness of a sudden death and a grieving process that takes time to unfold. Bestselling author Elly Griffiths says she ‘hasn’t ever read a more assured or compelling debut.’
Later this year, we publish The Big Push: Exposing and Challenging Sustainable Patriarchy by leading US feminist Cynthia Enloe. Pulling back the curtain on patriarchy’s current workings, she reveals not only blatant sexism, but complicity and tokenism dressed up as modernization. As Helena Kennedy says, The Big Push is ‘a manual for taking us to the finishing line of gender equality. A jolt of new energy for longstanding feminists and a ‘must read’ for our new generations’.
