Indie Publisher of the Day: Pushkin Press
We’re very conscious that, whilst this splintered world we’re living in threatens and challenges ALL of the businesses in our bookish eco-system, many of the indie publishers we love so much (and their authors) will be finding it particularly tough without shop-floors like ours open to display their books.
So, each day for the forseeable future, we’re going to post a list featuring one of our favourite independent publishers with a mix of some of their latest titles that might not be getting the attention they deserve and some of what we regard as their “greatest hits”!
Next up is Pushkin Press, who were founded in 1997. They publish novels, essays, memoirs and children’s books from around the world, from timeless classics to urgent contemporary reads. We had so many options for this list as so many of their books are staff favourites, but we finally narrowed it down, to bring you what we think are their recent highlights.
