Faber is one of the world’s great independent publishing houses. Since we were founded in 1929, poetry has been at the heart of our publishing, with T. S. Eliot as our first Poetry Editor. In every generation, Faber has sought to find the very best writers and we are proud to publish the foremost voices in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, film and children’s books. Thirteen Nobel Laureates and six Booker Prize-winners have been published by Faber, with awards most recently for Kazuo Ishiguro and
