The Bookseller’s Associate Editor Caroline Sanderson presents three Distinctive authors for 2018 from Two Roads – a new imprint of John Murray Press. The Sealwoman’s Gift, set in 17th century Iceland, is the debut novel from Sally Magnusson, bestselling author of Where Memories Go. Twitter superstar Aaron Gillies’ The Anxiety Survival Guide is a funny, reassuring and helpful book for when your brain is your worst enemy, and Sarah Haywood introduces the prickly heroine of her sparkling debut The Cactus.

I’m a massive fan of Big Little Lies and love every single cast member, so seeing Reese Witherspoon recommend The Cactus here is incredibly surreal and wonderful 🌵

My sons & I have just finished making this Stranger Things Lego set. Isn’t it fabulous? It’s like the doll’s house I always wanted as a little girl only better because it has an Upside Down and a Demogorgon (It came in 11 bags and Eleven was in the 11th)
