PIATKUS BOOKS was founded in 1979 from the spare bedroom of Judy Piatkus’ home. Over the years, Piatkus became one of the UK’s leading independent publishers of fiction and lifestyle titles. In 2007 it was acquired by Little, Brown where it continues to bring a wonderful range of books to a wide readership. In 2014, Piatkus joined forces with Constable and Robinson to form PCR, a dedicated team of enthusiastic editors, publicists, marketers and salespeople committed to bringing success to our imprints and our authors. No matter the specific genre, every PCR book aims to deliver the very best of what the reader is seeking, be that escapism from everyday life or practical solutions to problems in the real world.
