Morvern Callar, Paperback (August 2015)
It is off-season in a remote Highland sea port: twenty-one-year-old Morvern Callar, a low-paid employee in the local supermarket, wakes one morning to find her strange boyfriend has committed suicide and is dead on their kitchen floor. Morvern's laconic reaction is both intriguing and immoral. What she does next is even more appalling...
Their Lips Talk of Mischief, Paperback (July 2015)
High up in the Conrad Flats that loom bleakly over Acton, two future stars of the literary scene - or so they assume - are hard at work, tapping out words of wit and brilliance between ill-paid jobs writing captions for the Cat Calendar 1985 and blurbs for trashy novels with titles like Brothel of the Vampire.
Can's Tago Mago, Paperback (February 2015)
"'An officially approved account of one of the most influential and powerful albums of the 1970s, this brilliant addition to the 33 1/3 series by Scottish novelist Alan Warner will explore in detail the conception, recording and release of the album Tago Mago by Can"--Provided by publisher.

US Kirkus Review » A sequel to Scots novelist Warner's acclaimed debut, Morvern Callar (1997), returns to the rootless life of that eponymous antiheroine as her wanderings bring her into contact with two strongly imagined, and keenly differentiated, characters: a disc jockey organizing an immense "rave" to be held on a remote airstrip, and an "Aircrash Investigator" obsessed with saving lives in a culture where it seems life is often indifferently thrown away. Oddly reminiscent of Faulkner's Pylon (and with more than a bit of a nod toward The English Patient), this tense, curious novel is best read in conjunction with its predecessor - and there are inconclusive suggestions that it may be part of a larger work still in progress.
