From 4th: The best of 2018 (pt2)

• Dec 29, 2018 •

We’re looking back at some of the highlights of 2018. We published some truly phenomenal works of both fiction and non-fiction this year, but here are some personal picks from members of the 4th Estate team.

The Wife’s Tale, Aida Edemariam’s elegiac memoir of her grandmother’s experience in an Ethiopia changed beyond recognition through her lifetime – by invasion, exile, revolution, and civil war – is the most extraordinary book. Moving in its tracing of one woman’s life through the prism of a country in freefall, I would challenge anyone to read this and not feel a deep emotional connection to Aida, her grandmother, and to the land in which it is set.”
Jack, Audio Editor

The Party – my first introduction to Elizabeth Day that has led to a full-blown love for everything she does. I was so gripped by her original and clever writing that I read it in two days!”
Caroline, Sales Executive

“I loved Strudel Noodles and Dumplings by Anja Dunk – this is quirky, quality and moorish good food. Anja has a wonderful way of beckoning you into the kitchen in a very open-hearted away. Suddenly, making your own noodles seems totally sensible and doable! This book also gives you flavours you’ve never tasted before – the reward for testing out such an underrated cuisine.”
Tara, Senior Marketing Manager
