little scratch tells the story of a day in the life of an unnamed young woman. She wakes up, goes to work, watches the clock and checks her phone. Underneath this monotony, there’s something else going on; something under her skin. In a voice that is all at once fierce, profound and delicate, she relays what it takes to travel that single trajectory: from morning to night.

This is the tale of Vivek Oji: it begins with his end, his naked body shrouded on his mother’s doorstep, and moves backwards through time to unpick the story of his life and the mystery surrounding his death. The story of a Nigerian childhood quite different from those we have been told before, this is a fresh, engaging novel about the innocence of youth and how it clashes with culture and expectation.

Rediscover one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers as Faber reissues the works of Lawrence Durrell

In a world trembling on the brink of war, passion and death are inextricable.

The Republic of False Truths ALAA AL ASWANY General Alwany is a pious man who loves his family. He also tortures and kills enemies of the state. The regime of Hosni Mubarak faces its greatest crisis: the idealistic young have come together to challenge the status quo. As Mubarak is toppled, love blossoms across class divides, but the general and his friends mount a devastating counter-attack. The Republic of False Truths offers a deeply moving and passionate fictional account of the trauma of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. TPB | £12.99 23/07/2020 | 9780571347605

Lawrence Durrell's scandalous 'investigation of modern love' set the world alight in 1957, and – as André Aciman reveals – it has burned ever since.

Meanwhile in Dopamine City DBC PIERRE Out of sync with the changes in his hometown and his century, Lonny Cush doesn’t have the means to give his quiet teenage son and precocious, ultra-demanding nine-year-old daughter Shelby-Ann what they need. Desperate to win back his kids’ favour he splashes out on the thing Shelby-Ann wants more than anything: her first smartphone. A humane, deeply empathetic satire; the most moving and entertaining exaggeration of the fearful nightmare of trying to raise a kid now.

Gender Swapped Fairy Tales KARRIE FRANSMAN and JONATHAN PLACKETT People have been telling fairy tales for hundreds of years. And for almost as long, people have been rewriting those fairy tales – to help children see themselves in the stories they hear. The stories in this book haven’t been rewritten. There are no reimagined endings, or reinvented characters. All that has been done is to switch all the genders.  Prepare to be dazzled by the world this little swap creates – and amazed by the new characters you’re about to discover . . .

with some of the best Faber fiction

Selfie-sticks with demonic powers. Cold calls from the dead. And that creeping suspicion, as you sit there with your flat white, that none of this is real. John Lanchester’s first book of shorter fictions, Reality, and Other Stories is a gathering of deliciously chilling entertainments, to be read as the evenings draw in and the days are haunted by all the ghastly schlock, uncanny technologies and absurd horrors of modern life.

Sudden Traveller SARAH HALL In Turkish forests or rain-drenched Cumbrian villages, characters walk, drive, dream and fly, trying to reconcile themselves with their journey through life and death. A woman fitted with life-changing technology returns to the site of her strongest memories; a man repatriated in the near east hears the name of an old love called and must unpack history’s suitcase; and from the new world-waves of female anger and resistance, a mythical creature evolves. Each of these stories opens channels in the human mind and spirit.

Lead by Halima, Livingstone’s sharp-tongued cook, and three of his most devoted servants: Jacob, Chuma and Susi, their tale of how his corpse was borne out of nineteenth-century Africa – so that he could be buried in his own country – has the power of myth. It is symbolic of slavery’s hypocrisy, a portrait of a world trembling on the cusp of change, and a celebration of human bravery, loyalty and love. B PB | £8.99 03/09/2020 | 9780571345342

Its owner, Malcolm, lives a quiet life, so he’s surprised when an FBI Agent shows up. The FBI is investigating unsolved murders that have one thing in common: each bears a similarity to a famous classic mystery novel, those listed in Malcolm’s blog post ‘My Eight Favourite Murders’. They hope that Malcolm’s knowledge will help solve the murders. But with each murder, it becomes less clear who is investigating whom.

Pulling her into an insular and controlling evangelical community, the case might just be bigger than Roxane can handle alone. But is it too late, or too dangerous, to call on the people she needs?

The Ottoman Empire was a hub of flourishing intellectual fervour, geopolitical power and enlightened pluralistic rule. At the helm of its ascent was the omnipotent Sultan Selim I (1470–1520), who expanded the Empire, propelling it onto the world stage. Alan Mikhail centres Selim’s Ottoman Empire and Islam as pivots of global history, redefining world-changing events such as Christopher Columbus’s voyages, the Protestant Reformation, the transatlantic slave trade, and the dramatic Ottoman seizure of the Middle East and North Africa.

After the publication of Outline, Transit and Kudos – in which Rachel Cusk redrew the boundaries of fiction – this writer of uncommon brilliance returns with a series of essays that offers new insights on the themes at the heart of her life’s work. Encompassing memoir, cultural and literary criticism, with pieces on gender, politics and writers such as D. H. Lawrence, Olivia Manning and Natalia Ginzburg, this collection is essential reading for our age: fearless, unrepentantly erudite, both startling and rewarding to behold.

A groundbreaking account that vividly recaptures Selim’s life, radically reshaping our understanding of a world we thought we knew.

Conflicted IAN LESLIE In this highly connected but increasingly polarised world, where potential conflicts seem to lurk behind every headline, timeline and professional encounter, it’s tempting to seek to coerce, persuade and smooth over our differences. But Ian Leslie argues that in order to avoid mediocre, unproductive groupthink, festering resentments and even outright violence, we need to get better at disagreement. Delving into the work of expert communicators Leslie demonstrates how their techniques can help us learn to disagree better, making work, friendships, marriages and family lives flourish.

Dark ads, psy-ops, hacks, bots, soft facts, ISIS, Putin, trolls, Trump. We’ve lost not only our sense of peace and democracy, but also our sense of what those words even mean. With a style unmatched by any previous voyager, Peter Pomerantsev journeys deep into the dark heart of the disinformation age, in a fascinating and compelling exploration.

Sweet Dreams charts the rise of the Blitz Kids and the New Romantics, a scene that grew out of the remnants of post-punk and developed quickly alongside club culture, ska, electronica, and goth. One of the most creative entrepreneurial periods since the Sixties, the era had a huge influence on the growth of print and broadcast media, and was arguably one of the most bohemian environments of the late twentieth century.

Wolfgang Amadè Mozart JAN SWAFFORD


A vivid new biography, toppling the many myths surrounding Mozart. Wolfgang Amadè Mozart is not primarily a myth-busting book, but in the process of bringing to vivid life the man and composer absorbed in writing for his public rather than for posterity, the myths topple en route.

Postcolonial Love Poem NATALIE DIAZ


Postcolonial Love Poem demands that every body carried in its pages – bodies of language, land, suffering brothers, enemies and lovers – be touched and held; where the bodies of indigenous, Latinx, black and brown women are simultaneously the body politic and the body ecstatic. Her poetry questions what kind of future we might create, built from the choices we make now.

Introducing a world of glitz and glamour, debauchery and decadence, where a deadly rivalry threatens to tear the Holtzfall family apart.

How to Fly will both delight Kingsolver’s devoted readership and welcome new readers to her startling verse, while revealing an intimate side to her creative practice as yet unseen. Divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole: a series of ‘How to’ poems that smartly balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism with revelatory wisdom, a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage, cherished childhood memories, the perils and pleasures of being a [female] writer, elegies to lost loved ones, and elegies to the planet. DEMY HB | £16.99 06/08/2020 | 9780571359899

The younger generation must compete in trials to determine who is most virtuous – and therefore most worthy – of inheriting control of the family, their money and their magic. But as they wage their battles something bigger and more sinister bubbles beneath the surface.

Faber & Faber Poetry Diary 2021 & Liberty Faber Poetry Diary 2021 VARIOUS The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, was shaped by the taste of T. S. Eliot, who was its guiding light for nearly forty years. Each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who are arguably the finest of their generation. The Faber Poetry Diary is a celebration of this remarkable Faber list. Illustrated throughout with vintage and contemporary book jackets the diary has a sturdy cover and an elastic closure. The Liberty Poetry Diary is covered with Liberty London Fabric.

The World’s Most Magnificent Machines DAVID LONG

Cover in progress


The longest ship ever built, the heaviest digger and the largest aeroplane, the world’s first working motorcar, and its most expensive one. What machines like these have in common is that they all say a lot about the inventiveness and imagination of the people who conceived and created them. Some of them are useful, others are just a bit of fun, but the best ones are truly magnificent, and fascinating to discover.


The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff. Where had he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows. Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

A beautiful and thrilling round-up of 50 of the best Magnificent Machines from across history. HB | £14.99 01/10/2020 | 9780571347186
