Founded in 2010, the Daunt Books imprint is dedicated to publishing brilliant works by talented authors from around the world. Whether reissuing beautiful new editions of lost classics or publishing debut works by fresh voices, our titles are inspired by the Daunt Books shops themselves and the exciting atmosphere of discovery to be found in a good bookshop.
Our publishing in 2017 is as diverse as the titles lining our shelves and filling the tables of our shops. We’re always aiming to recreate the experience of browsing in a Daunt Books shop, where the eye darts from spine to cover and back again, exhilarated by the variety and choice on offer. All our books this year – whether rediscovered classic or exciting debut – have compelling stories, vibrant settings, and wonderful characters to fascinate and delight.
85-year-old Lillian Boxfish celebrates a long life in Manhattan by walking its chilly streets on New Year’s Eve, while in A Broken Mirror, a grand villa on the outskirts of Barcelona is the setting for an epic family saga. Iraqi-American Haris Abadi is compelled to join the Free Syrian Army at any cost in Elliot Ackerman’s timely new novel, and in The Gastronomical Me, M.F.K. Fisher discovers a new way of eating and living in France. Rio returns to her hometown in Japan to confront the secrets of her past in Pull Me Under and non-fiction legend John McPhee relocates his family to a tiny Hebridean island in The Crofter and the Laird. And, finally, in A Cat, A Man, and Two Women three characters are pulled across Tokyo by a rather exceptional cat.
