The Literary Almanac: A year of books (Hardback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Whether echoing the changing seasons or set in a particular month, each of the 24 books recommended in The Literary Almanac has been selected to chime with that time of year to provide a richer reading experience and open our imaginations to the different seasons and rhythms of our world.



Beautifully illustrated throughout with original artwork, this compendium guides the reader through a trove of bookish delights. Divided into twelve sections, the Almanac suggests a pair of titles perfect to read in any given month. An overview accompanies each selected title, all of which serve to signpost the passage of the calendar year, from season to season and month to month. With further reading suggestions and seasonal literary trivia, readers will be spoilt for choice with recommendations and fascinating minutiae.
