Daunt Books Publishing is an independent publisher based in London. Founded in 2010, we grew out of Daunt Books, an independent chain of bookshops in London and the South-East. We publish the finest and most exciting new writing in English and in translation, whether that’s literary fiction – novels and short stories – or narrative non-fiction including essays and memoir. We also publish modern classics, reviving authors who have been overlooked and publishing them in bold editions with introductions from the best contemporary writers. We are responsible for bringing the work of Sybille Bedford, Dorothy Baker, M.F.K. Fisher, Natalia Ginzburg and Vivian Gornick back into print. In 2020 we launched Daunt Books Originals, an imprint for bold and inventive new writing in English and in translation. The first authors on this list include Elisa Shua Duspain (translated by Aneesa Abbas Higgins), Kathryn Scanlan, Amina Cain, Brenda Navarro (translated by Sophie Hughes) and Brandon Taylor.
Daunt Books Publishing is part of the Independent Alliance and our books are distributed by Faber & Faber in the UK, or available to buy in our own shops and on our website.
