Jules Grant’s thrilling debut novel We Go Around In The Night And Are Consumed By Fire, previously shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize, is shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger. The novel is currently in production with Leopard Drama and La Plante Productions.
We have much to celebrate with the publication three new books:
Darryl Cunningham’s latest investigation, Graphic Science: Seven Journeys of Discovery, champions key figures in scientific discovery whose work has been overlooked, sidelined, excluded and discredited.
The Big Push: Exposing and Challenging the Persistence of Patriarchy, by leading US feminist Cynthia Enloe, is described by Helena Kennedy OBE as ‘a manual for taking us to the finishing line of gender equality’.
Tony Peake’s exquisitely realised new novel, North Facing, revisits a seminal boyhood moment against the backdrop of political upheaval in South Africa.
IN CASE YOU MISSED…
We’ve just published Talking to Gina, a funny, touching and beautifully drawn memoir by Ottilie Hainsworth—described by Meg Rosoff as ‘a must-read for anyone who’s ever loved or been loved by a dog’.
Elle Magazine’s Book of the Month was S.V.Berlin’s The Favourite, an utterly immersive novel of estranged siblings. Bestselling author Elly Griffiths says she ‘hasn’t ever read a more assured or compelling debut.’
Taking his new novel An English Guide to Birdwatching as a starting point, Nicholas Royle was joined by psychoanalyst and writer Adam Phillips at The Freud Museum in London to discuss how literature and psychoanalysis can speak to and of each other. The podcast is available now.
