Gallic Books Limited
Gallic Books is home to the best of French writing in English. Founded by Jane Aitken, working with fellow Francophile and ex-Random House colleague Pilar Webb, we launched our first titles in 2007.
In the six years since, English-speaking readers have become far more interested in foreign language authors, and Gallic has been at the heart of the publishing trend fulfilling that demand for books in translation.
Gallic titles are wonderfully French and, even more importantly, good reads with universal appeal. And we have some brilliant books coming up next year. Highlights include the award- winning and Waterstone’s Book Club choice The President’s Hat by Antoine Laurain, which, set in the 1980s, is the story of the mysterious power residing in a hat owned by François Mitterrand; in The Suicide Shop by Jean Teulé, business is brisk at the futuristic store, until happiness threatens to ruin everything...
We are also launching two historical crime series: The Nicolas Le Floch Investigations by Jean-François Parot, set in eighteenth- century Paris, and The Napoleonic Murders from Armand Cabasson. Our contemporary noir title The Panda Theory is from critically acclaimed Pascal Garnier. And we are very pleased to be bringing to the United States Clisson and Eugénie, the love story from the pen of the great Napoleon Bonaparte.
In September 2011 we opened a bookshop, Belgravia Books, specializing in books in translation and from independent publishers. Find out more at www.belgraviabooks.com.
