Faber & Faber marks the 90th anniversary of the publishing house but it’s no puff piece, instead it offers a bewitching insight into 20th century literary culture. Drawing on unpublished diaries, letters and minutes, the founder's grandson Toby Faber – speaking today – creates a collage of voices including curt missives from Virginia Woolf; Ted Hughes’s pleas to be published; and an unflattering report on A Bear Called Paddington.
