One of the reasons I love Orenda Books is because they bring us the best literary fiction from across the globe. Tasting Sunlight is from Germany and is a case exactly on point. I am more than ready for the joy of discovering an author who, in the words of his agent, ‘can bring theContinue reading “COVER REVEAL: TASTING SUNLIGHT BY EWALD ARENZ trs Rachel Ward @EwaldArenz @FwdTranslations @OrendaBooks”

The Second Cut by Louise Welsh @louisewelsh00 @CanongateBooks @NormanTweets
It’s glorious, so well written and full of spirit and humanity. Stylish and yet squalid, The Second Cut is chock-full of life, vivid, gleaming characters and a brilliant witty spirit.
Anatomy of a Heretic by David Mark @davidmarkwriter @HoZ_Books @AriesFiction
Anatomy of a Heretic is utterly riveting storytelling. Dark, brutal, and gloriously repellent in its descriptions, this is a grotesque and fabulous read that immerses you in deadly intrigue.
#CoverReveal Little Drummer by Kjell Ola Dahl @ko_dahl @OrendaBooks
It is my absolute pleasure to reveal the cover for Kjell Ola Dahl’s newset Nordic Noir novel in the Oslo Detectives series. I am really excited for this one. Kjell Ola Dahl’s books are always sharply topical and he combines global subject matter with drama and compassion. It sounds like Little Drummer, once again translatedContinue reading “#CoverReveal Little Drummer by Kjell Ola Dahl @ko_dahl @OrendaBooks”
The Heretic by Liam McIlvanney @LiamMcIlvanney @HarperFiction @KillerReads @fictionpubteam
‘a smasher of a book. It crackles and zings with the life and spirit of Glasgow, good, bad and truly terrible; with the violence that belongs in that city’s history, could we only contain it there.’

The Twyford Code by Janice Hallett @JaniceHallett @ViperBooks
‘An exciting and innovative book for bibliophiles with a sense of fun. It is a terrific mystery; a great exercise in misdirection and a novel that both delights and satisfies.’
Demon by Matt Wesolowski @concretekraken @Orenda Books
This is in so many ways a heart-breaking story but we see so clearly how much more heart-breaking we have made it through our own desire to have a perspective on something we really know so little about.
