‘A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.’ So said Henry Miller – an ethos which we aim to champion through Country & Town House. We’ll share roundups of our favourite reads, from romantic to crime; poetry collections to coffee table books. We have travel books to escape with, royal memoirs, classic novel special editions and the C&TH team’s favourite books of all time. This is also the place to come to stay in-the-know on buzzy new releases, which we’ll share in our regularly updated culture radar: a guide of what to read, watch and listen to each month. We’ve got a range of guides for book lovers, including the best literary festivals to visit, online book clubs to join and London’s loveliest independent bookshops and libraries to explore. We’ll also bring you interviews with authors – don’t miss conversations with Meg Mason, Kate Mosse, Caleb Azumah Nelson and many more esteemed literary names.
