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.
“It’s almost impossible to pick just one, but this year I loved Darragh Martin’s Future Popes of Ireland. With a sizable heart to match it’s ambition, this big, funny (and at times desperately sad) book charting the lives of the four Doyle children is everything you want in a novel.”
Matt, Marketing Director
“One of my favourite books this year would have to be Money: A User’s Guide by Laura Whateley. Not only is it packed full of amazing tips and essential information, but it’s managed to make money accessible, straight-forward and simple – not an easy feat!”
Nicola, Publishing and PR Executive
“Bursting with inspirational stories from women who thrive in the face of extreme adversity, Slay In Your Lane totally blew me away. It deserves to be read by everyone.”
Naomi, Publicity Manager
This year I was so moved by Lisa Appignanesi’s extraordinary memoir, Everyday Madness. It’s not only a very raw and honest exploration of losing a partner, but also describes so well the ‘everyday madness’ that we all experience from time to time – and Lisa brings in an amazing range of literary references along the way, from Audre Lorde to Seneca and Winnie the Pooh.
