A Helping Hand by Celia Dale | Fiction | Paperback | £9.99 | 22 September 2022
‘The queen of suburban horror.’ The Times
Beneath the suburban respectability of cups of tea and genteel chitchat, however, emerges a different tale: one of ruthless greed and exploitation, and suffocating, skin-crawling terror.
A Helping Hand is a sharp and nasty slice of darkness, and a reminder that the real horrors of this world can all too often be found behind discreet net curtains and the quietly nondescript.
A Horse at Night: On Writing by Amina Cain | Non-Fiction | Paperback | £9.99 | 27 October 2022
‘Cain writes beautiful precise sentences about what it means to wander through this luminous world.’ Jenny Offill
An individual reckoning with the contemporary moment and a quietly brilliant contribution to the lineage of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own or William H. Gass’s On Being Blue, A Horse at Night is a virtuosic argument for – and beautiful demonstration of – the essential unity of writing and life.
An Alphabet for Gourmets by M.F.K Fisher | Non-Fiction| Paperback | £9.99 | 10 November 2022
With a foreword by Ella Risbridger
‘Entertaining and knowledgeable.’ New Yorker
From A for (dining) alone to Z for Zakuski, ‘a Russian hors d’oeuvre’, An Alphabet for Gourmets takes us through a selection of food essays by the incomparable M. F. K. Fisher, alighting on long-time obsessions and idiosyncratic digressions to wholly charming effect.
