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 Lie With Me by Philippe Besson, a coming-of-age love story between two teenage boys in rural 1980s France. Non-fiction titles on my list include Conversations on Love by Natasha Lunn, a celebration of love in all its forms, which blends memoir and interviews with experts and authors on their relationships; and The Crane Wife by CJ Hauser, a collection of personal, illuminating essays that wrestle with received narratives of romantic love. I also curate a list of modern classics in translation called the Penguin European Writers series.
