For us booksellers, publishing usually runs through highs and lows: the pause after a hectic Christmas, the sudden rush around Easter of good spring publishing, the summer lull of August when the holiday jets have taken off and we’re left to plan for autumn.

Not 2016, however – from an unexpected surge of cracking post-Christmas publishing (such as Julian Barnes’ The Noise of Time) through to choice summer titles (Jessie Burton’s The Muse and Sarah Perry’s The Essex Serpent), it has been a year of rather continuous excellence.
