About Us

Route is a publishing house in the north of England with a principle commitment to authentic stories and good books. Our  titles have been bestowed with Book of the Year Awards from Rolling Stone Magazine, Mojo, Rough Trade, Guardian, Northern Soul, Morning Star and Reader’s Digest, and have been deemed worthy of being shortlisted for the James Tait Memorial Prize for Fiction, Penderyn Music Book Prize, NME Book Award, Association for Recorded Sound Collections Award and PEN Ackerley Prize.

‘The sharpest, on the button writing you’ll read all year. Route could soon start taking on a Samizdat level of importance as it quietly ushers in the beginnings of a much needed literary renaissance.’ – The Big Issue

‘Now we rely on small independent publishers such as Route, often based outside London, to support authors such as Michael Nath. Two or three decades ago, a novel this unusual would not have seemed out of place on, say, Picador’s list.’ – The Independent

Route’s trade distributer is Central Books
