Two Roads - perfect Book Club fiction and non fiction.

    Two Roads Books

    Since we started publishing in 2011, the landscape of publishing has changed a great deal. But our mantra – stories, voices, places, lives is a constant. Whatever the format, this is what we do and matters – we're all about stories. We publish about a dozen books a year, both fiction and non-fiction and we're always on the lookout for the extraordinary. Strong stories, beautifully written, that you want to press into the hands of your friends and say . . . 'You must read this.'
