Exhausted your summer reading pile? Don’t despair, as we are launching a brand new batch of ebooks from our 2019 list to keep you entertained on the sun-lounger, from inside your caravan while the August rain pours, or on the move.
To kick off the season, today we release shiny ebook editions of popular new titles Brando’s Bride, The Blue Tent, Notes from a Swing State and I, Eric Ngalle. All have been garnering many great reviews in the press, as you can read in the small selection below.
‘There will not be a better written, more understanding and forensically researched biography published this year.’ – Roger Lewis, Daily Mail
‘Glamorous and gritty by turns … an absorbing and entirely fascinating read…’ – Mab Jones, Buzz
On The Blue Tent, the new novel by Richard Gwyn:
‘One of the most satisfying, engrossing and perfectly realised novels of the year.’ – The Western Mail
‘This book is itself a sort of portal, where the novelist-as-alchemist builds us a house in the hills and then fills it … with a convincing magic.’ – Nation.Cymru
On Notes from a Swing State: Writing from Wales & America, the new essay collection by Zoë Brigley:
‘Zoë Brigley chronicles frightening and disorientating political shifts across Trump’s America … writing about motherhood or girlhood, home or abroad, she is particularly attuned to the most subtle forms of both violence and hope, and so with startingly beautiful imagery can offer the reader new ways of gathering morale in disheartening times.’
As featured on the Wales Arts Review Podcast which you can listen to on their website [https://www.walesartsreview.org/wales-arts-review-podcast-episode-three/].
On I, Eric Ngalle, the new memoir by Eric Ngalle:
‘Powerful and challenging … Neki / Nazromi / Diolch!’ – Ifor ap Glyn, National Poet of Wales
‘I, Eric Ngalle is an exploration of memory and trauma … it takes guts to tell all in this way.’ – Jon Gower, Nation.Cymru
All are available to buy as ebooks from all your good online retailers, while new praise-laden print editions will be hitting the shops this week.
