Paradise Road

We are a new independent publisher of non-fiction books about London. Up In Smoke: The Failed Dreams of Battersea Power Station is our first title. Coming soon is London Pubcats – pubs, with cats, in London. This will be followed by the first in what we intend to be an annual anthology of the best non-fiction writing about London, plus writers on their favourite independent London bookshops. All three titles will be released in 2016. Come back soon for more news.
