  • Mirror Mirror: A collection of Poems

    Alexander Shihwarg

    Shura was born in Harbin “like Skidelsky and Yul Brunner”, married to the novelist Joan Wyndham, and known and loved by many. At nearly 100, he is still inimitable as a raconteur. This is his first publication.

  • The Odyssey

    Translated by Emily Wilson

    EM’s translation has caught the public eye, being the first published translation by a woman… however, this misses the point: this translation is vivid, straightforward, and modern without being annoying.

  • Threads

    Sandeep Parmar, Nisha Ramayya and Bhanu Kapil.

    A slim but beautifully produced collection of essays, verse and correspondences by three young poets. Max Porter (of Grief Is The Thing With Feathers fame and editor for Granta) called it ‘the boldest, most serious and interesting stuff around.’
