Bloomsbury Publishing is an independent publish house with its head quarters in London and branches in New York, New Delhi and Australia. It is considered one of the largest publishing companies in the UK. Its target are mainly high quality fiction with which I concur, evidence is four novels I have read so far published by them which have all been long-list, shortlist nominee and winner of most of the literary awards.
You can feel the sombre mood on their book cover, they are in for real adult issues. In my opinion, Abdulrazak Gurnah, Aminatta Forna, Khaled Hosseini and Leila Aboulela are just exceptionally good, you can tell Bloomsbury Publishing's commitment to excellence.
