Lockdown has upended publishing schedules (as well as everything else), which means from August onwards there’s going to be an absolute avalanche of new books vying for your attention. But before we get distracted by all that, we’re giving a little reopening boost to some of the excellent titles that were published in April, May and June that you might have missed.

All of these books are available to reserve for collection in the Bookshop, or to purchase online via the London Review Book Box for home delivery.
