*** COVID-19 UPDATE ***

Dear Text readers,

As we’re sure you’re aware, the entire world is having to adapt to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, with many workforces moving almost entirely to remote working. Text is no different, and in these circumstances we are sorry that we can no longer fulfil web orders for our books. We urge you to keep supporting our authors by buying their books via your favourite local booksellers, many of whom are offering home delivery to customers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these extraordinary times.
