Penguin Lines ~ Celebrate 150 years of the London Underground

The city is filled with stories. For the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, twelve writers tell their tales, each inspired by a different Tube line. Some are personal, some are polemical; every one is unique, showing how we are connected, and how the space in which we live shapes us and our imaginations.

Explore the nation's capital with our selection of London-focused favourites both old and new.
As love swirls all around us this month, find a lusty page-turner that will keep you up all night, a classic romance with period piece drama, and share Valentine's Day with the family.
