William Heinemann is a part of Cornerstone Publishing
William Heinemann is one of the oldest literary imprints still publishing today. Founded in 1890, the imprint boasts both a rich literary heritage and a forward-thinking, cutting-edge list of contemporary fiction and non-fiction. Historically we have published Harper Lee, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Anthony Burgess, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Graham Greene, John Steinbeck and Nabokov to name just a very few. Today William Heinemann publishes acclaimed fiction from both sides of the Atlantic – David Vann, Douglas Coupland, James Ellroy, Nick Harkaway, John Niven, Paul Harding (winner of the Pulitzer Prize), Jenni Fagan (a Granta Best Young British Novelist), Johanna Skibsrud (winner of the Giller Prize), Amy Waldman, Lauren Groff, Jonathan Lee, Sathnam Sanghera – and in translation – Michel Houellebecq (winner of the Prix Goncourt) and Alonso Cueto – as well as some of the best upmarket crime and thriller writers, including Thomas Harris, Donna Leon, Kathy Reichs, John Harvey and Annie Hauxwell.
The non-fiction list is an eclectic mix that includes history, current affairs, reportage, popular culture, memoir, popular science and narrative non-fiction from authors such as Azar Nafisi (Things I’ve Been Silent About), Tony Judt (Postwar, The Memory Chalet, Thinking the Twentieth Century), Ben Mezrich (The Accidental Billionaires, Straight Flush), Kevin Dutton (Flipnosis, The Wisdom of Psychopaths), Liaquat Ahamed (Lords of Finance, a Pulitzer Prize winner), Charles Duhigg (The Power of Habit), Kevin Ashton (No Genius Necessary – forthcoming) and Thomas Harding (Hanns and Rudolf – forthcoming).
