Picador will publish Mary South in the UK


We’re thrilled to announce that Mary South’s YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2020) and forthcoming untitled novel (also Farrar, Straus and Giroux) will be published in the UK by Picador UK.

Picador UK editor Ansa Khan Khattak told The Bookseller, “What I love about Mary South is her ability to take our reality and skew it slightly. You Will Never Be Forgotten is a collection of brilliant, original, satirical stories that explore how human emotions persist under surreal conditions, and her forthcoming novel promises to be just as excellent. Her writing has exactly the kind of imaginative flair and commitment to exploring how we think, feel and behave as people that I find so exciting. I’m delighted that she will be joining the Picador list.”

Congratulations to Mary! Find out more about her work here.
