Penguin General

At Penguin General we aim to publish good books that can be picked up and enjoyed by everyone. Our many readers, like our authors, stretch around the globe, and what unites both is an intelligent curiosity about the world around us, as well as a love of great storytelling.

More about Penguin General

Our aim as a division is closely aligned to that of Penguin’s founder, Allen Lane: to publish good books for everyone. We are a broad church for anyone who is culturally inquisitive. Our publishing incorporates bestsellers and prize-winners, books of quality written for a wide audience. Our books can be scholarly, but they are always accessible; they may be literary but also inclusive. Our authors are storytellers from all over the globe, and our simple mission is to connect them with a large and appreciative readership.
