Gallic Books was founded by francophile former Random House colleagues Jane Aitken and Pilar Webb and has been publishing the best of French in English for over ten years.
The Gallic list now comprises more than 80 works of contemporary fiction and non-fiction, including historical fiction, crime and noir, biography and memoir, commercial and literary fiction, graphic novels and classics.
Our authors and translators have won or been shortlisted for a number of prestigious prizes, including the Goncourt, the Prix Interallié, the Grand Prix du roman de l’Académie française, the IMPAC, the CWA Dagger, the French-American Translation Prize and the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize, and have been selected to take part in events such as European Literature Night, and promotions including Waterstones Book Club and the ABA Indies Introduce programme.
The Aardvark Bureau was launched in 2015 with the aim of publishing an eclectic selection of the best writing from around the world, primarily fiction written in English. Our authors hail from all points of the globe, and the stories they tell span centuries and continents, taking you from Jazz Age Sydney to wartime Suffolk, from New Zealand in the sixties to contemporary London.
In 2011 we opened our bookshop, Belgravia Books, near London’s Victoria station, stocking our own books as well as a wide selection of general fiction and non-fiction, with many titles from our fellow independent publishers.Download our complete list of books Download Our 2019 Catalogue
