Selina Walker, Publisher of Century and Arrow said, “These truly are the books everyone is talking about - pretty much around the world. They are romantic, liberating, and utterly page-turning, and have sparked more round-the-table conversation than any books I can remember. We are delighted to be publishing the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy in Arrow, and to be welcoming EL James to our publishing list.”
First published in May 2011 by The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House in Australia, Fifty Shades of Grey follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. Subsequent novels in the series, Fifty Shades Darker (September 2011) and Fifty Shades Freed (January 2012) explore the couple’s deepening relationship. The trilogy has already sold more than 250,000 copies in ebook and paperback editions.
