Faber & Faber The Untold Story, by Toby Faber (Faber 2019)

Neil's picture

A hugely entertaining history of one of the most influential publishers in the world, told from within. Through letters, meeting minutes, memoirs and diaries Toby Faber reports on the evolution of the company against a changing Britain. Starting in 1924, the book traces the firm's struggle through the Great Depression, the Second World War and its paper shortages, financial crises, and later consolidation and takeovers of most publishers of the time. Dramatically, Faber has retained its independence. Long may it continue!
