This edible-looking novel by the wondrous Juliet Lapidos is out 7th February 2019! ‘The ultimate literary caper ... deliciously funny’ Helen Oyeyemi

A wickedly caustic tale of a student who stumbles on a literary treasure.
Anna Brisker, a once promising student, has fallen behind. Her PhD on inspiration is overdue and instead she busies herself with power-eating strawberry pop tarts and watching as her doctoral peers fly off to take posts at prestigious universities.

Alone over the holidays, Anna strikes up an unexpected and life-changing friendship. But what can Helen Langley, a middle-aged antiquarian bookbinder, have in her possession that might unlock Anna’s thesis and her chronic inertia? And what laws will Anna break to get it?

Lean and compulsively readable, Talent is a literary romp that delights in its wicked lampooning of the academic world and asks how far we should go to meet our potential. And in Anna Brisker, we have an audacious heroine who cannot help but shine with mordant brilliance.

✨ Cover Reveal ✨
We are totally entranced by the paperback cover of ENTANGLEMENT by Katy Mahood, a bewitching novel about love and sacrifice, and the choices we make that stay with us. 🍂

On a hot October day in a London park, Stella sits in her red wedding dress opposite John. Pregnant and lost in thoughts of the future, she has no idea that lying in the grass, a stone’s throw away, is a man called Charlie. From this moment, Stella and Charlie’s lives are bound together in ways they could never imagine. But all they have is a shared glance and a feeling: have we met before? 🍁

ENTANGLEMENT explores how our choices can reverberate across the generations, and the sparks of hope they can ignite. 🍂

Stella Duffy described ENTANGLEMENT as a ‘beautifully deceptive’ and ‘hugely impressive’ novel. 🍁

Available in paperback on 7 February 2019.
