  • FIRST PERSON

    A young and penniless writer, Kif Kehlmann, is rung in the middle of the night by the notorious con man and corporate criminal, Siegfried Heidl. About to go to trial for defrauding the banks of $700 million, Heidl proposes a deal: $10,000 for Kehlmann to ghost write his memoir in six weeks.

    But as the writing gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by Heidl. As the deadline draws closer, he becomes ever more unsure if he is ghost writing a memoir, or if Heidl is rewriting him – his life, his future. Everything that was certain grows uncertain as he begins to wonder: who is Seigfried Heidl – and who is Kif Kehlmann?

    By turns compelling, comic and chilling, First Person is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.

  • DEFENESTRATE

    A wildly inventive, exhilarating debut narrated by a young woman meditating on her Czech ancestors’ ‘falling curse’, her twin brother’s fall from a window, and the malleable, breakable bonds keeping her family from falling apart.

    One thing that the city of Prague is famous for is throwing men out of windows. The word for this is defenestration.

    In 1895, Marta’s great-great-grandfather Jir? was said to have given a gentle push to the back of a stonemason for having wronged him. The stonemason fell to his death and the family fled the Czech capital for the American Midwest, where they set up a new life.

    So begins the story of Marta and her brother Nick, deeply interwoven twins haunted by the mysterious curse that has plagued their family for centuries, one that has doomed them to suffer various types of falls. And when Nick falls out of a window and ends up seriously injured, Marta embarks on a heart-breaking quest to discover whether or not his fall was intentional, and to stop her family from falling apart.

    Grappling with family myths, sexual identity and mental illness, Defenestrate is a novel about the kinds of tales we tell ourselves and others in order to survive – and how those stories can both protect and betray us. From a major new voice in literary fiction, Defenestrate is a novel about belonging, and finding one’s place in a world in which you are, quite literally, plummeting.

  • A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES

    THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES.

    The long fuse of rebellion has already been lit.

    It’s 1772, the Royal Colony of North Carolina, and the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and preserve the colony for King and Crown.

    One minor problem: Jamie Fraser’s wife, Claire, is a time-traveller, as are his daughter and son-in-law. And Jamie knows that three years hence, the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the end of it all will be independence – with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile.

    Beyond present danger, though, looms the threat of a tiny clipping from the Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports the destruction of the house on Fraser’s Ridge and the death by fire of James Fraser and all his family.
    For once, Jamie Fraser hopes the time-travelers in his family are wrong about the future. But only time will tell.

  • SUNCATCHER

    1964. Ceylon is on the brink of change. But Kairo is at a loose end. School is closed, the government is in disarray, the press is under threat and the religious right are flexing their muscles. Kairo’s hard-working mother blows off steam at her cha-cha-cha classes; his Trotskyite father grumbles over the state of the nation between his secret flutters on horse races in faraway England. All Kairo wants to do is hide in his room and flick over second-hand westerns and superhero comics, or escape on his bicycle and daydream.

    Then he meets the magnetic teenage Jay, and his whole world is turned inside out.

    A budding naturalist and a born rebel, Jay keeps fish and traps birds for an aviary he is building in the garden of his grand home. The adults in Jay’s life have no say in what he does or where he goes: he holds his beautiful, fragile mother in contempt, and his wealthy father seems fuelled by anger. But his Uncle Elvin, suave and worldly, is his encourager. As Jay guides him from the realm of make believe into one of hunting-guns and fast cars and introduces him to a girl – Niromi – Kairo begins to understand the price of privilege and embarks on a journey of devastating consequence.

    Taut and luminous, graceful and wild, Suncatcher is a poignant coming-of-age novel about difficult friendships and sudden awakenings. Mesmerizingly it charts the loss of innocence and our recurring search for love – or consolation – bringing these extraordinary lives into our own.

  • TWO BESIDES

    Given the opportunity to revisit the characters from Talking Heads I’ve added a couple more, both of them ordinary women whom life takes by surprise. They just about end up on top and go on, but without quite knowing how. Still, they’re in good company, and at least they’ve made it into print.’

    Alan Bennett’s twelve Talking Heads are acknowledged masterworks by one of our most highly acclaimed writers. Some thirty years after the original six, Bennett has written Two Besides, a pair of monologues. Each, in its way, is a devastating portrait of grief. In An Ordinary Woman, a mother suffers the inevitable consequences when she makes life intolerable for herself and her family by falling for her own flesh and blood; while The Shrine tells the story behind a makeshift roadside shrine, introducing us to Lorna, bearing witness in her high-vis jacket, the bereft partner of a dedicated biker with a surprising private life.

    The two new Talking Heads were recorded for the BBC during the exceptional circumstances of coronavirus lockdown in the spring of 2020, directed by Nicholas Hytner and performed by Sarah Lancashire and Monica Dolan.

    The book contains a substantial preface by Nicholas Hytner and an introduction to each, by Alan Bennett.

    No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose.
