Imprints and communities



riverrun books is Quercus’s new literary imprint. riverrun has been set up to showcase the literary fiction, upmarket crime and top class non-fiction that we have built up at Quercus. For years we’ve been curating a list that, in its diversity, has one feature to mark it out – the writing. We’ve found talent in many different forms, and it’s the writers themselves that make riverrun what it is.
