Rageh Omaar's recent BBC2 series explored the legacy of the Ottomans - the world's last Islamic empire, which collapsed a century ago. But the Ottomans' influence extended into much of Europe, and even now, events from the past have an enormous bearing on significant world affairs. Now in Faber Finds, Alan Palmer's study of the region is essential reading.
Faber Finds is delighted to be publishing seven books (five this year and two more in 2014) by writer, activist and intellectual Brigid Brophy. Undeservedly forgotten, Brophy, a contemporary of Iris Murdoch and Muriel Spark, has since her death gained fans such as Ali Smith and D. J. Taylor. 'Prepare to be ravished' writes the editor on the Faber Finds blog. See all books.
Tim Jeal is perhaps best-known these days for his very fine biographies of Great Victorians - the likes of Stanley and Livingstone. But he is also a very skilled novelist - even picking up a John Llewellyn Rhys Prize in 1975 for Cushing's Crusade. We're pleased to be able to offer all eight of Jeal's novels, each one with a new preface by the author. Find out more.
