Zadie Smith is releasing her very first story collection with Hamish Hamilton next autumn: Grand Union.
The collection will contain 10 entirely new stories alongside 10 of what the publisher described as "her very best, drawn from two decades of remarkable short fiction".
Interweaving old and new and culminating with a longer piece - the title story, "Grand Union" - the collection as a whole is promised to offer "a wise, playful and richly varied portrait of the world as seen by the one and only Zadie Smith".
On Twitter, Hamish Hamilton's Simon Prosser, publishing director, shared the collection's "super fresh" cover, designed by Jonathan Gray.
Hamish Hamilton bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Georgia Garrett at RCW. The collection will be published on 3rd October, priced at £20.
