Editorial Director

At Viking I publish literary and upmarket fiction and non-fiction. Fiction titles on my list include: Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson, a gorgeous, soulful debut about two Black British artists falling in and out of love in South East London; If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha, a glitteringly dark and unsettling debut following four young women in South Korea; and In Memoriam by Alice Winn, an epic tale of both the tragedies of the First World War and the forbidden love affair that blooms between two soldiers. Non-fiction titles on my list include the top ten Sunday Times bestselling Conversations on Love by Natasha Lunn, a celebration of love in all its forms; and The Crane Wife by CJ Hauser, an intimate, frank and funny memoir-in-essays. I also curate a list of modern classics in translation called the Penguin European Writers series.
