}

Penguin Specials are designed to fill a gap. Written by some of today's best and most exciting writers, to be read over a long commute or a short journey, in your lunch hour or between dinner and bedtime, these ebooks provide a short escape into a fictional world or act as a primer in a particular field or provide a new angle on an old subject. They are short, original and affordable – and only available in a digital format.

Specials colours are inspired by the original Penguin Livery: Orange - Fiction, Dark blue - Memoir, Yellow - History, Pink - Cookery and Turquoise - Contemporary nonfiction.

'Our ambition in this digital publishing venture is not to experiment with quality but with form: our aim is to fill a current gap by bringing readers high-quality work that is too short for a book and too long for a magazine, so that you need never be without a something satisfying to read.' - Ben Ball, Publishing Director, Penguin General
