  • Oxford, city of dreaming spires, bicycles, Inspector Morse, tourists, gentility. Or perhaps a less familiar place? Having lived and worked there for thirty years, Patrick McGuinness brings an intimate knowledge to this new exploration of the city. He reflects on the familiar and introduces us to the unnoticed, to create a new way of looking at Oxford. Available now.

    Patrick McGuinness explores ‘Real Oxford’
  • Just You and the Page opens in 1971, with the dramatist Michael Wall hammering out his plays on a portable typewriter. It concludes in 2020, when the novelist and academic Josie Barnard is teaching students to compose novels on Instagram. Award-winning novelist, Sue Gee interviews twelve distinctively different writers, all old friends, looking at what has shaped them: at struggle, inspiration and dedication to their art. Pre-order now.
