We’re very glad to have you here at the virtual home of HarperFiction’s literary fiction imprint, The Borough Press!

The imprint name was chosen just as Borough, near London Bridge, was announced as the new home of HarperCollinsPublishers. It’s a place that reflects the spirit of our books, and the spirit of the imprint: energetic, modern and passionate – proud of a rich and varied past, and enthusiastic about a thriving present and future.

We are the home of some of the best-loved and most critically acclaimed authors of today, such as Lionel Shriver, Tracy Chevalier, Nathan Filer and Louisa Young. But The Borough Press is also the fertile ground to nurture new voices that we believe will be the stalwarts of tomorrow. You will always find wonderful debuts at Borough, alongside household names; what they have in common is passionate, intelligent writing coupled with energetic, page-turning plots. We love all the books we publish, and hope you do too.
