This week's guest is Tony White, founder and publisher of Piece of Paper Press, a lo-tech, sustainable publisher of new writings and illustrative works. Each book is manufactured from a single A4 sheet that is printed on both sides, and then folded, stapled and trimmed by hand to create the book. Piece of Paper Press titles are always distributed free, either by post and/or at an event. Authors who have contributed include Joanna Walsh and Michael MoorcockTony is also the author of books including Foxy-T and Shackleton’s Man Goes South. His latest novel The Fountain in the Forest is published by Faber and Faber, which the Guardian described as 'An avant-garde take on the pulp crime genre becomes a paean to liberty and a secret history of the 1980s'.

What Editors Want is a new podcast in which I interview a different editor each week from the world of publishing. It’s aimed at readers who want to hear the behind the scenes story of how their favourite books get made, and aspiring authors who want to know how to get published.I’ve spoken to everyone from the biggest names in the industry to independent publishers taking a dynamic and innovative approach to making books. Along the way I’ve met the editors behind Nobel and Booker Prize winning authors (and practically every other literary prize), ground-breaking non-fiction (from The Panama Papers to Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race), with everything from kid’s books to cookbooks in between.My dream is that this podcast will make the world of books more approachable and inclusive for the authors and publishing professionals of tomorrow by hearing about the career paths of industry leading editors, and how they choose their books.Philip Connor Finn is an editor at award-winning publisher Unbound.
