In 2016, Heywood Hill celebrated its 80th anniversary. In honour of the occasion, distinguished authors were asked to share the single book - published in English in the last 80 years - that has meant the most to them and to provide a three-word justification for their choice. 


The great William Boyd chose 'Pale Fire' by Vladimir Nabokov: 

"Unique, mind-boggling, hilarious"
