Welcome to Two Roads
This website is where you can discover our writers and learn more about their work and what we do; each book we publish has a dedicated page (click the drop-down menu on the toolbar above) full of extra information. We’re not a large imprint, but we like to think we are mighty. We publish about 12-15 books a year, voice-driven fiction and non-fiction – all strong narrative and great stories with heart and intelligence.
2016 has been another big year so far for our publishing with some terrific débuts and new directions for us. In the first few months in fiction we published three extraordinary débuts. Guinevere Glasfurd’s The Words in My Hand – a truly beautiful novel set in 17th century Amsterdam, now shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award. Janet Ellis’ The Butcher’s Hook – a dark tale of Georgian London and Peter Hanington’s A Dying Breed – a contemporary suspense novel set in the compromised world of news reporting. Three extraordinary stories from three new talents.
Excitingly, early this year we published the first volume in Riad Sattouf‘s award-winning graphic memoir The Arab of the Future – Volume Two is now out. The heartwarming (and Sunday Times bestselling) story of Arthur – the dog who crossed the jungle to find a home by Mikael Lindnord appealed to dog lovers everywhere. Comedian and writer Susan Calman‘s account of living with depression, Cheer Up Love touched so many people.
Our autumn line up continues strongly with The Butcher’s Hook in paperback, Nigel: my family & Dogs by Monty Don, Queen Bees, Leap Year , Love Warrior, and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein (head writer for Amy Schumer). These are just a few of our highlights that we’re proud to be publishing. Follow the links to find out more.
And yes, there is other stuff. You can interact directly with us on Facebook, Twitter , Instagram and Pinterest; and sign up to our newsletter on the right-hand side of this page for even more news, advance reading copies, giveaways and competitions.
But, most importantly, we hope that whenever you come across a Two Roads title you’ll recognise our love for stories… voices… places… lives… and discover a page-turning book you love reading and want to recommend to your friends. It’s what we believe makes Two Roads truly special; we hope you enjoy what you find here. Let us know what you think.
