Isabel Wall

I publish literary fiction and select non-fiction at Viking, having joined the imprint in 2015. I’m always looking for the most exciting new literary voices from the UK and around the world. In fiction, I gravitate towards novels about people falling in and out of love, growing up and apart, about the bonds that make and break families – books that dive beneath the surface of things, that help us to dream, to understand one another and the world around us. In non-fiction, I focus on literary memoir and essay collections.

Authors on my list include: Caleb Azumah Nelson, Elif Shafak, Hisham Matar, Alice Winn, Jonathan Coe, Elizabeth Strout, Natasha Lunn, Anna Funder, Miranda Cowley Heller, Nina Stibbe, Frances Cha, Ann Napolitano, Khashayar J Khabushani, CJ Hauser, Chukwuebuka Ibeh, V.V. Ganeshananthan, Emmett de Monterey, Benjamin Wood and Yael van der Wouden.
