Books that bring us together

Harvill Secker logo

At Harvill Secker we publish books that cross borders and genres. Our outlook is international and we’re proud of our range. We seek out the most exciting voices from the UK and around the world, inspired by our founders’ mission to ‘overcome the barriers between people.’

We look for writers who thrill and transport readers, with ground-breaking literary novels, bestselling crime and thrillers, immersive historical fiction and culturally engaged non-fiction and memoir. Our authors represent some of the finest talent from more than fifty countries, including Nobel and Booker Prize-winners, and a new generation of charismatic voices taking us into the future.

For more than 100 years, we have celebrated curiosity, discovery and understanding – and we are proud to continue to do so today.
