“We are in the hands of men whose wealth and power have separated them from the reality of everyday life and from the imagination. We are right to be afraid.”
FSG invites you to celebrate the power of the imagination with the poets and novelists who give us reasons to read: for solace, for protection, for instruction, for survival, for music.
For every month in 2020, we’ve selected one book of fiction and one poetry collection to keep you company. And each writer will recommend a title from FSG’s history, from dog-eared classics to buried gems. Our year of literature will unfurl through unmissable events and a suite of special offers, enlisting booksellers, bookmakers, readers, and writers.
