Foyles Notes

Foyles Signed Exclusive Edition

Strictly limited to 1500 copies: the Foyles signed exclusive edition of Transcription, the new novel from the Costa Award-winning author of Life After Life and A God in Ruins. Signed by the author, with red sprayed edges, a blue ribbon marker, and gorgeous exclusive endpapers, this limited first edition is a gorgeous addition to your collection.


A wry, nuanced work of fiction from a master of the craft, Transcription follows the mercurial Juliet as she becomes enmeshed in a world of double agents, fascist sympathisers, and defence of the realm during the early ‘Phoney War’ at the start of World War Two. Then, a decade on and working for the BBC—a British institution perhaps as labyrinthine as the espionage game—Juliet’s past comes back to bear in the new world of post-war Britain.

Kate never lets me down. Another great read with the added enjoyment of such a charming edition.

This is one of my favourite Kate Atkinson's novels. Set in the second world war it is a tale of espionage, coming of age and how far people will go for their country. Highly recommended.

This was my introduction to Kate Atkinson, and so good that it has prompted me towards her earlier books. 'Transcription' is a wonderfully teasing, meandering, story, very true to its period, and keeping you guessing over the reality until the end. I did wonder if the incident beginning and ending the book was really necessary, but that's a very minor point. Strongly recommended.

Always special when a new much-anticipated book emerges to be able to read a sumptuous edition. Pleasure of ownership. There's something absurdly satisfying as eyes close at night about marking your page with a silk bookmark. The book of course is as wonderfully written as always by Kate Atkinson.
