Small press pop quiz - Unthank Books

13 February 2014 / Leave a Comment
What makes Unthank Books different to other publishers?
We've got quite a family thing going on that we often have writers who attend our school of creative writing; are perhaps published by us either in our acclaimed bi-annual short fiction series Unthology or as novelists at; and/or appear at our Autumn literary festival We train'em, publish'em and then show'em off.

What kind of manuscripts are you looking for?
Literary novels that either make us look at the world with new eyes or are written in an extraordinary way.

If someone was to read two books on your list, what should they be?
CAPTIVITY by Lander Hawes and LAIKONIK EXPRESS by Nick Sweeney.

What are you excited about for 2014?
That's easy. We've got the second novel by a writer who the Guardian has just called 'the greatest literary author you've probably never heard of' - namely Mr. David Rose. Arguably the greatest short story writer in the UK today, MERIDIAN (publication in October 2014) is a virtuosic example of complex technical achievement married with deep insight and social satire and commentary. It's the musings of a modern architect but manages to be about life in Britain and the West en totale. Very clever and very rewarding. We're very, very lucky to have got this. Should be required reading.
