Our best-selling titles, new releases and the good old classics are all here so whether you love Nick Cave’s dark imagination, being tickled by Tim Key’s poetical gems, or taking a quick dip into Miranda July's quirky short stories, there’s something to suit every taste. Spoilt for choice? 


This month we recommend:

This month we are releasing the first ever unabridged recording of  William Golding's The Spire, read by the brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch.

The story of Dean Jocelin and his belief that God has chosen him to erect a spire on his cathedral, despite there being no foundations, was first published in 1964. Half a century later, and 60 years after the publication of Golding's classic, Lord of the Flies, Benedict Cumberbatch has brought this disastrous tale back to life. The Spire is a dark and powerful portrait of one man's will, and the folly that he creates. Listen exclusively here
