We were lucky enough to have Beatrice and Fay Ballard, daughters of J.G, write a piece on their father, 'Crash', and how the two interwove, forming each other and imprinting on the minds of all who knew them: http://bit.ly/1mNEgz8

Yesterday, 4th Estate took a trip to the theatre, and we saw not one, but two fantastic plays. The Royal Shakespeare company has adapted the undeniably sensational 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up The Bodies' by double Man Booker Prize winner Dame Hilary Mantel, bringing to the stage two equally gripping, imaginative and thought-provoking pieces of theatre that are truly unforgettable. We were lucky enough to interview Director Jeremy Herrin, so click here to listen along to the podcast, and feast your eyes on some fantastic shots of the plays. http://bit.ly/1rDCxRN

Father's Day has been and gone but this 4x4 on Fathers and Sons in literature is still just as good as that day it was born. 4th Estate looks at the complex relationships between the paternal figure and his male offspring, and how this relationship is always formative, sometimes damaging and never perfect: http://bit.ly/AndSons

To celebrate Hilary Mantel's glorious 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies' gracing the stage, 4th Estate takes four books that have been artfully adapted into stage productions for our latest 4x4. Alongside Mantel's Man Booker winning novels are 'Cats' by T.S. Eliot , 'Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up' and 'The Waves' by Virginia Woolf:

'It’s hard to see how Maya Angelou hasn’t had an effect on me; the way I look at myself, the drive to transcend societal constraints that friends continue to tell me don’t exist, my hair, my body, the skin I live in.' Our marketing assistant Candice says goodbye and thank you to Maya Angelou for paving the way for black females in publishing, and the wider world: http://bit.ly/MayaAn

Hilary Mantel's 'The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher' is coming out on the 25th September this year. 

A brilliant – and rather transgressive – collection of short stories from the double Man Booker Prize-winning author of 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies'.

Hilary Mantel is one of Britain’s most accomplished, acclaimed and garlanded writers. Uniquely, her last two novels, 'Wolf Hall' and its sequel 'Bring Up the Bodies', both won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. In this new collection of ten stories, all her gifts of characterisation, observation and intelligence are once again fully on display. With settings ranging from Saudi Arabia to Greece to London, they reveal a great writer at the peak of her powers.
