Hag: Forgotten Folktales Retold

DAISY JOHNSON, Emma Glass, et al.

£14.99 £13.94

These forgotten folktales howl, cackle and sing their way into the 21st century, wildly reimagined by some of the most exciting women writing in Britain and Ireland today.

The Mere Wife

Maria Headley

£9.99 £9.29

A fierce, feminist retelling of the classic tale Beowulf that re-examines the story from the perspective of those traumatised by war. Brilliant.

Ayesha at Last

Uzma Jalaluddin

£8.99 £8.36

A superb South-Asian, Muslim spin on Pride and Prejudice. Brilliantly tackles the Austen's original themes, while also powerfully addressing Islamophobia and immigration.

Telling Tales

Patience Agbabi

£9.99 £9.29

A feminist reworking of The Canterbury Tales, this brings Chaucer to life in a way that will surprise and delight readers. Agbabi gives each story an intimate feel, where the reader feels they know the characters inside and out and feel for them at every turn.

The Song of Achilles

Madeline Miller

£9.99 £9.29

A heartbreakingly beautiful book. Miller somehow stays true to the original, while simultaneously exploring the lives of the characters in a much more realistic feeling way.

On Beauty

Zadie Smith

£8.99 £8.36

This re-imagining of Howard's End is unpredictably brilliant on every page. Tackling family life, marriage, race and beauty, Zadie Smith expertly weaves a narrative that is as satisfying as it is bold.
