Northcote House Publishers
LUP has assumed responsibility for more than 400 backlist titles and a frontlist of around 10 new books a year. The partnership will also see the titles digitised and systematically available as ebooks, many for the first time.
Anthony Cond, Managing Director of Liverpool University Press, said ‘Across almost 25 years, Writers and Their Work has developed an enviable list of tightly-focused books that are widely used by students of literary studies in both universities and schools. Moreover, the series includes among its authors some of the leading literary critics of the past quarter of a century.’
Brian Hulme, Managing Director of Northcote House Publishers, added, ‘Liverpool University Press combines the gravitas of a 120 year old university press with the agility and energy of a start-up, as such it is very well placed to enhance and expand the Writers and Their Work series.’
Launched in 1994 in association with the British Council, Writers and Their Work won immediate acclaim for its publication of brief but rigorous critical examinations of the works of distinguished writers and schools of writing. The series embraces the best of modern literary theory and criticism, and features studies of many popular late-twentieth-century writers, as well as the canonical figures of literature and important literary genres.
