Our pick of the best dystopian books ever written.
If you have read or are planning to read Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel with your book club (which we would highly recommend), take these questions along to get your discussion started.
We all know a beautiful book cover when we see one – it can pull you as if by magic from one side of the bookshop to the other with its shiny gold foil or its stroke-me surface. But magic it is not: the clever design and production teams spend hours and days plotting how to make the mo...
We all fell in love with Station Eleven when it first came in on submission to Picador, and we couldn't be more excited that it has won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for science fiction.
In Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven, a bleak post-apocalyptic world is transformed into something beautiful by following a travelling Shakespearean theatre company as they pass through ruined town to town. She explores art, celebrity, fame and leaves the reader with a nostalgia f...
Not only do we have a brand new cover for the paperback of Station Eleven, out in January 2015, we also have beautiful matching covers for her three other novels, which will be published for the first time in the UK next year.
