We are over the moon to announce that Greenwich Park, Katherine Faulkner‘s unputdownable debut novel, is published in UK paperback today (Bloomsbury / Raven). Greenwich Park, a dark, compelling look at motherhood, friendships, and the secrets we keep to protect ourselves, immediately captured readers’ attention.
Greenwich Park was featured in an staggering number of roundups, including Goodreads, Daily Mail, Grazia, The Sunday Times, Guardian, iNews, Culture Fly, and her.ie, to name a few. This January, Katherine spoke to Bookreporter about her personal experiences of some of the underlying themes of Greenwich Park – if you haven’t seen the interview yet, take a look here.
We were especially delighted when Greenwich Park was chosen as Waterstones’ Thriller of the Month (March 2021), a Sainsbury’s Adult Book Club Pick, and a WH Smiths Travel Deal of the Week. It hit the USA Today bestseller list, and also jumped straight onto the Canadian bestseller list – an incredibly impressive feat!
The campaigns for this paperback release have been nothing short of fantastic – we were completely blown away by the window display of Blackheath Bookshop. See it for yourself here!
