THE EVENING AND THE MORNING
30 years on from publishing their first novel with Ken Follett, Pan Macmillan announces the publication date of Follett’s new novel, The Evening and the Morning, releasing on September 2020
Thirty years ago, Ken Follett’s ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ was published by Pan Macmillan, which has now sold over 27 million copies worldwide. This new novel is the masterful prequel to his best-loved historical masterpiece and it is set to capture the imagination of long-term Follett fans and new readers alike.
Ken Follett has described it as:
‘A journey that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.’
‘The idea for a novel often comes from a question: Why were the cathedrals built? Why did we have World War One? The Evening and the Morning started with me asking myself what Kingsbridge was like before the cathedral was built. So the new book takes us back to the turn of the first millennium 1000 AD. It’s called The Evening and the Morning because this period is the end of the Dark Ages and the beginning of the Middle Ages. I’m delighted by the reaction so far of editors to The Evening and the Morning. I hope you enjoy it.’
Jeremy Trevathan, Publisher of Pan Macmillan said:
‘Pan Macmillan has had the pleasure of working with Ken for thirty years this year, with the first title we published the international phenomenon ‘The Pillars of the Earth’. The longevity and success of our collaboration has been a source of huge pride for Pan Macmillan. The fact that today, in this anniversary year, we announce the publication of Pillars’ prequel is therefore tremendously exciting on all levels. We cannot wait for publication next year.’
