One of the UK’s oldest publishing imprints, Hutchinson was the first publisher of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, EF Benson and HG Wells and continues to be the home of P.G. Wodehouse. Today, we publish fiction and non-fiction and love discovering new writing that is bold, entertaining and original. We champion books that engage with the way we are living and thinking now, as well as celebrating the brilliant storytelling of our established bestsellers like Robert Harris, Sebastian Faulks, the late Helen Dunmore and Paulo Coelho.
Our recent non-fiction bestsellers include Tara Westover’s inspiring and internationally bestselling memoir, Educated; Hard Pushed: A Midwife’s Story; MP Jess Phillips’ galvanising Everywoman: One Woman’s Truth About Speaking the Truth; Erebus by Michael Palin; The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu; as well as Ikigai, The Power of Nunchi and Self-Care for the Real World. We’re very much looking forward to Pandora Sykes’ wide-ranging and incisive essay collection, How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right, and the legend that is Barbra Streisand telling her story – and are proud to have published memoirs and diaries from Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Tony Benn and Alastair Campbell.
In fiction, Amor Towles’ A Gentleman in Moscow has been an international bestseller; and Daisy Jones & The Six, both a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller, has been bought by Reese Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine. Many of our debut authors have gained critical and commercial success: Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott’s dazzling Swan Song was longlisted for the Women’s Prize and Carys Bray’s A Song for Issy Bradley was shortlisted for the Costa Prize and the Desmond Elliot Prize, alongside Paula Cocozza’s How to be Human.
