Small publishers and independent film makers can follow their fancies, but we have had a number of critical and even commercial successes.
Goodbye Dearest Holly reached #6 in the bestseller list, and our ITV film When Holly Went Missing was nominated as best current affairs film at the BAFTAS.
Pushing the Limits, a book by wheelchair athlete Mark Eccleston, was nominated for the best Sports Book of The Year Whitbread Prize.
London Unplugged. The Times compared this compilation of city life to Paris Vu Par – a 1965 film made by Goddard, Truffaut and Chabrol.
Sucking Sherbet Lemons by Michael Carson is a 1990s best seller with a new introduction by Simon Callow. One of many reviewers on Amazon wrote:
“I have very fond memories of this book and twenty years on from its original publication date I re-read it to see if it had stood the test of time. It has. Benson begins the novel an overweight teen, racked by guilt, trying to come to terms with his unquestioning Catholic belief and blossoming sexuality. It is very funny and I laughed out loud in a number of places”.
Toast with everything – and everything on toast!
Through this website, we want to both celebrate our existing publications and promote new projects, including This Book Is Toast by Heidi Nathan with some material from Dame Maureen Lipman.
