In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of 'good books for all'.

Helen Dunmore writes poetry, short stories and novels both for children and adults and she has received widespread acclaim for work. All ten books of her adult fiction have been published by Penguin, and in Rose 1944, we present several short stories that reveal the range, intricacy and depth found in one of modern fiction's great lyrical voices.
