is the website of publisher, writer and editor Edward Fenton – that’s me.

I set up Day Books in 1998 to publish a series of ‘great diaries from around the world’. Later I broadened its scope to include biography, memoirs and collections of letters, but I remain primarily interested in diaries. Several Day Books titles have featured in the ‘Books of the Year’ lists in the national press, including the Observer, Guardian and Sunday Telegraph.

As well as being a diarist myself, I write on a wide range of subjects, and mentor other writers through the literary consultancy the Writers’ Workshop.
