Canongate from July to December 2018


Canongate is an independent publisher: since 1973 we’ve worked to unearth and amplify the most vital, innovative voices we can find, wherever they come from, and we’ve published all kinds of books – thoughtful, upsetting, gripping, beatific, vulgar, chaste, unrepentant, life-changing . . . Along the way there have been landmarks of fiction – including Alasdair Gray’s masterpiece Lanark, and Yann Martel’s Life of Pi, the best-ever-selling Booker winner – and non-fiction too. We’ve published an American president and a Guantanamo detainee; we’ve campaigned for causes we believe in and fought court cases to get our authors heard. And twice we’ve won Publisher of the Year. We’re still independent, and we’re as committed to unorthodox and innovative publishing as ever.


A LONG ISLAND STORY Rick Gekoski It is 1953, a heat wave is sweeping across America and the Grossmans – Ben, Addie and their two children – are moving their lives from the political heart of Washington DC to suburban Long Island. Benny was a successful lawyer in the Department of Justice, but all that has come tumbling down. With the McCarthy era of paranoia, persecution and propaganda at its height, his past has come back to haunt him, forcing him to pack up his family and leave the capital behind. With their future uncertain, life in Long Island starts to open old wounds for Ben and Addie, both start to wonder if they were meant for more, whether their future might look different than they planned, and whether their marriage – their family – is worth fighting for . . .

Now a successful book dealer, Kagwa has a family of his own after meeting and falling in love with Emma, a librarian. The two marry and have a baby: so far so happy-ever-after. However, as the pair settle into their new lives as parents, exhaustion and anxiety start to take their toll. Emma’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, until one day she commits an unthinkable act, setting Apollo on a wild and fantastical quest through a suddenly otherworldly New York, in search of a wife and child he no longer recognises. An epic novel for our anxiety-ridden times, The Changeling is a tale of parenthood, love – in its most raw and brutal form – and, ultimately, humanity.

An unflinching and deeply moving collection of stories making up a vivid portrait of prison life, painted from behind bars

THE GRAYBAR HOTEL Curtis Dawkins A man sits collect-calling strangers every day just to hear the sounds of the outside world; an inmate recalls his descent into addiction as his prison softball team gears up for an annual tournament; a prisoner is released and finds freedom more complex and baffling than he expected. In this stunning debut story collection, Curtis Dawkins, who is currently serving a life sentence without parole, offers a glimpse into the reality of prison life through the eyes of the people who spend their days and years behind bars. ‘A debut collection that is compelling and real . . . Remarkable for its modesty, realism and humanity . . . He has produced a book that is not only moving and genuine, but genuinely important; one that, without resorting to shock tactics, powerfully conveys the perverse inhumanity of mass incarceration’ Guardian ‘A dazzling debut . . . The gritty, gripping and grimly comic stories . . . draw the reader in with the sweep of their humanity and empathy’ Telegraph

Curtis Dawkins grew up in rural Illinois and earned an MFA in fiction writing at Western Michigan University. He has struggled with alcohol and substance abuse through most of his life and, during a botched robbery, killed a man on Halloween 2004. Since late 2005, he’s been serving a life sentence, with no possibility of parole, in various prisons throughout Michigan. He has three children with his partner, Kim, who is a writing professor living in Portland, Oregon.

An exploration of modern masculinity by the first transgender man to box at Madison Square Garden

AMATEUR

A True Story About What Makes a Man

Thomas Page McBee In this ground-breaking new book, Thomas Page McBee, a trans man, trains to fight in a charity match at Madison Square Garden while struggling to untangle the vexed relationship between masculinity and violence. Through his experience of boxing – learning to be hit, and to hit back; wrestling with the camaraderie of the gym; confronting the betrayals and strength of his own body – McBee examines the weight of male violence, the pervasiveness of gender stereotypes and the limitations of conventional masculinity. A wide-ranging exploration of gender in our society, Amateur is ultimately a story of hope, as McBee traces a way forward: a new masculinity, inside the ring and out of it. A graceful and uncompromising exploration of living, fighting and healing, in Amateur we gain insight into the stereotypes and shifting realities of masculinity today through the eyes of a new man.

Thomas Page McBee was ‘masculinity expert’ for Vice and the first trans man ever to box at Madison Square Garden. His essays and reportage have appeared in the New York Times, Playboy, Glamour and Salon. twitter @ThomasPageMcBee link thomaspagemcbee.com

A vivid and gripping historical mystery set in nineteenth century Edinburgh, from husbandand-wife writing team Chris Brookmyre and Marisa Haetzman

THE WAY OF ALL FLESH Ambrose Parry Edinburgh, 1847. City of medicine, money, murder. Young women are being discovered dead across the Old Town, all having suffered similarly gruesome ends. In the New Town, medical student Will Raven is about to start his apprenticeship with the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson. Simpson’s patients range from the richest to the poorest of this divided city. His house is like no other, full of visiting luminaries and daring experiments in the new medical frontier of anaesthesia. It is here that Raven meets housemaid Sarah Fisher, who recognises trouble when she sees it and takes an immediate dislike to him. She has all of his intelligence but none of his privileges, in particular his medical education. With each having their own motive to look deeper into these deaths, Raven and Sarah find themselves propelled headlong into the darkest shadows of Edinburgh’s underworld, where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to make it out alive.

Ambrose Parry is a pseudonym for a collaboration between Chris Brookmyre and Marisa Haetzman. The couple are married and live in Scotland. Chris Brookmyre is the international bestselling and multi-award-winning author of twenty-one novels, including Black Widow, winner of both the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year and the McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Novel of the Year. Dr Marisa Haetzman is a consultant anaesthetist of twenty years’ experience, whose research for her Master’s degree in the History of Medicine uncovered the material upon which this novel was based. twitter @ambroseparry

An extraordinary account of what it means to stand up for justice, and for yourself, no matter the cost

RISE

Life Lessons in Speaking Out, Standing Tall & Leading the Way

Gina Miller

Written with Elizabeth Day Gina Miller came to prominence when she brought one of the most significant constitutional cases ever to be heard in the British Supreme Court. Gina successfully challenged the UK government’s authority to trigger Article 50 – the formal notification to leave the European Union – without parliamentary approval. For standing up for what she believed was right, Miller became the target of not just racist and sexist verbal abuse, but physical threats to herself and her family. She was repeatedly asked: how could she keep going at the cost of so much pain and aggravation? To her the answer was obvious: she’d been doing it all her life. In Rise, Gina Miller draws on a lifetime of fighting injustice and looks at the moments that made her; the trauma, failures and successes that gave her the confidence in her voice, the ability to know how to use it and the strength not to let others diminish it, even when it came at incredible cost. To those who say one person cannot make a difference, this memoir demonstrates irrefutably how you can.

Gina Miller was the lead claimant in the 2016 constitutional legal case against the UK Government over triggering Article 50. Born and raised in Guyana, she went to boarding school in England at the age of eleven and went on to study Law at the University of East London, then Marketing at the University of North London. In 2009, she and her husband Alan Miller co-founded SCM Direct, a disruptive investment management company, and the True and Fair Foundation, the latter of which provides funding and support to smaller charities. She has three children: Lucy-Ann, Luca and Lana. twitter @thatginamiller

Take your eye off it for more than a moment and you’re lost.’ Robert Elms has seen London change beyond all imagining: the house he grew up in is now the behemoth that is the Westway flyover, and areas once deemed murder miles have morphed into the stuff of estate agents’ dreams, seemingly in a matter of months.

A personal journey – part anecdotal, part impressionistic – through London’s constantly shifting cityscape by BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms

Elms takes us back through time and place to myriad Londons. He is our guide through a place that has seen scientific experiments conducted in subterranean lairs, a small community declare itself an independent nation and animals of varying exoticism roam free through its streets; a place his great-great-grandfather made the Elms’ home over a century ago and a city that has borne witness to epoch- and world-changing events.

Robert Elms is a broadcaster and writer, well-loved for his eponymous radio show on BBC Radio London. Elms started out as a journalist, writing for The Face and NME. He is a Londoner through and through, growing up in Ladbroke Grove with contemporaries Martin Kemp and Norman Jay. The Robert Elms Show is a celebration of every aspect of the tumultuous city of London. He interviews Londoners – famous and non-famous – and every week looks at all sides of the city, be that architecture, language, music, clothes and more. Elms is the author of two previous works of non-fiction, The Way We Wore: A Life in Threads and Spain: A Portrait After the General, and a novel, In Search of the Crack. He lives in London with his wife and children. twitter @RobertElms

A powerful and profound study of the news – how we read it, who controls it and why it matters – from former Guardian Editor-inChief Alan Rusbridger

BREAKING NEWS

The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now

Alan Rusbridger Drawing on his twenty years as Editor of the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger offers a stirring, timely and agenda-setting examination of the news business today. Technology has radically altered the news landscape. Once powerful newspapers have lost their institutional strength, or have been bought by owners with particular agendas. State-owned media offer a government-sanitised version of the news. Algorithms now select which stories we see. The internet allows misinformation to spread at the speed of a click. Yet there is reason for hope. As much as the horizontal system of the internet makes possible ‘fake news’ and ‘post-factual’ politics, it also allows the unfettered dissemination of information (live tweeting of police brutality or civil rights activism, for example). And looking back on stories as diverse as the Edward Snowden files and the Panama Papers, Rusbridger makes a compelling case for why news matters – now more than ever.

Alan Rusbridger was Editor-in-Chief of Guardian News & Media from 1995 to 2015. He launched the Guardian Weekend magazine and the paper’s G2 section as well as overseeing the integration of the paper and digital operations, building a website which today attracts more than 100 million unique browsers a month. During his editorship the paper fought a number of high-profile battles over libel and press freedom, including cases involving Neil Hamilton, Jonathan Aitken, the Police Federation, Trafigura, freedom of information and WikiLeaks. The paper’s coverage of phone hacking led to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards and ethics. Guardian US won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for public service for its leading global coverage of the Snowden revelations. twitter @arusbridger link arusbridger.com

Tom Gauld

Rights: UKCWxC, neEU

Illustrated postcard collection, from multiaward-winning cartoonist Tom Gauld – the perfect gift for book lovers everywhere

In Snooty Bookshops, Tom Gauld asks the questions no one else dares ask about civilisation as we know it: - How do you get published during a skeleton apocalypse? - What was the secret of Kafka's lemon drizzle cake? - And what plot possibilities does the exploding e-cigarette offer modern mystery writers? A riotous collection of laugh-out-loud cartoon postcards in his signature style, Snooty Bookshops reaffirms Gauld's position as a first-rate cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.

Tom Gauld was born in 1976 and grew up in Aberdeenshire. He is a cartoonist and illustrator and his work is regularly published in the Guardian, the New York Times, and New Scientist. He is the author of three more comic books, Goliath; You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack and Mooncop, a New York Times bestseller. He lives in London with his family. twitter @tomgauld link tomgauld.com

IN MINIATURE

How Small Things Illuminate The World

Simon Garfield In Miniature takes a big look at small things; it’s a wide-ranging exploration of the history, psychology and fanaticism attached to working and playing in tiny worlds of our own making. We bring things down to size to understand and appreciate them. Something too big to visualise at full scale – a building perhaps, or a war – may be rendered comprehensible at 12:1. Artists – sculptors, set designers, poets – work in miniature because it encourages unusual scrutiny and deeper participation. This book does the same. If you are looking for Sylvanian Families or Dinky Cars or Tiny Topsy you will be disappointed, but if you are in the market for a flea circus, 1,000 miniature Hitlers, the revolving model box used by the designer of Angels in America and miniature food, then you’re in luck. Simon Garfield is a master of finding delight and fascination in unlikely places, and in In Miniature each object considered plots the course of a new miniature byway, and in unexpected ways lets us see our world in a whole new light.

Simon Garfield is the author of a number of acclaimed books of non-fiction including A Notable Woman (as editor), To the Letter, On the Map, Just My Type and Mauve. His study of AIDS in Britain, The End of Innocence, won the Somerset Maugham prize. twitter @simongarfield link simongarfield.com

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY BURN AGAIN Trump’s Rise to Power and the State of the Country that Voted for Him

Ben Fountain As Ben Fountain sees it, the United States is facing its third existential crisis. The first was the struggle over slavery, culminating in the Civil War. The second was the Great Depression, the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialised world, which brought about the New Deal. The third is Donald Trump. But how will it end? Taking in America’s love affair with firearms, celebrity culture, Russia, Obamacare, Hillary Clinton and, of course, Trump himself, Beautiful Country Burn Again explores how the United States reached a new crisis point and asks how America really can be great again. PAPERBACK 1 November 2018

Ben Fountain is the author of the acclaimed short story collection Brief Encounters with Che Guevara and the novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which won the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, the 2012 Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction and the 2012 Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize, and was shortlisted for the 2012 National Book Award. The film adaptation of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk was directed by Ang Lee. In addition, he has received the PEN/Hemingway Award, the Barnes & Noble Discover Award for Fiction, an O. Henry Award and two Pushcart Prizes. He lives in Dallas, Texas.

THE LITTLE SNAKE A.L. Kennedy ‘Some time ago, perhaps before you were even born, a young girl was walking in her garden. She may have been called Mary - that's what most of the stories say. Mary was a little bit taller than the other girls her age and had brownish crinkly hair. She was quite thin, because she didn't always have exactly enough to eat. She liked honey and whistling and the colour blue and finding out.’

A magical, charming and deeply moving fable about the journey we all take through life, about love and family, about war and resilience, about how we live in this world, and how we leave it

This is the story of Mary, a young girl born in a beautiful city full of rose gardens and fluttering kites. When she is still very small, Mary meets Lanmo, a shining golden snake, who becomes her very best friend. The snake visits Mary many times, he sees her city change, become sadder as bombs drop and war creeps in. He sees Mary and her family leave their home, he sees her grow up and he sees her fall in love. But Lanmo knows that the day will come when he can no longer visit Mary, when his destiny will break them apart, and he wonders whether having a friend can possibly be worth the pain of knowing you will lose them.

A.L. Kennedy has twice been selected as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists and has won a host of other awards, including the Costa Book of the Year for her novel Day. She lives in London and is a part-time lecturer in creative writing at the University of Warwick. twitter @Writerer link a-l-kennedy.co.uk
