This month is an exciting one for 4th Estate (as they all are). We’re publishing four novels from debut authors; one funny, unflinching insider’s view on the generation born in the 1980s by Claire Lowdon, one beautiful, heartrending graphic novel set in a conflict-ridden Kashmir in the nineties drawn by Malik Sajad, TWO novels (in beautiful box-set form) from Nell Zink, both hardly alike, but each winding between the themes of love, marriage sexuality and racism, reminding us just how tricky and inhumane human nature can be.
On the non-fiction side we have the first ever painstakingly researched, revelatory biography of Svetlana Stalin, a woman fated to live her life in the shadow of one of history’s most monstrous dictators – her father, Josef Stalin.
We’ll be speaking to the 4th Estate team about the first books they edited, marketed and did publicity for, as well as asking our authors the first book that made an impact on them. We’ll be prodding the design team to dig deep into the past to share with us the first cover they designed, plus, there will almost certainly be a quiz…
