Prelude Books is an independent publishing house dedicated to great reads. Prelude imprint publishes eye-opening psychology, popular science, history and memoir, while Farrago imprint is dedicated to accessible, entertaining humorous fiction. We are also proud to represent The School of Life Press to the book trade.
Farrago’s purpose is simply to help readers find fiction that makes them smile.
We introduce readers to books that may tickle their funny bone. We make sure that, if they find one funny, there’s a whole series they’ll enjoy. And eventually we let them trust Farrago to bring other series that make them smile.
Prelude’s aim is to nurture a rounded world view through accessible and stimulating works of psychology, science, history and memoir.
Our inaugural Prelude nonfiction classics are drawn from three earlier generations. Averaging life sales per title of over one million copies, each has proven power to change lives, and continuing resonance today.

Young Bartholomew Bandy doesn’t seem cut out for life in the armed services, as we meet him at the start of the First World War.
Yet he not only survives the dangers of the infantry trenches, he positively thrives in the Royal Flying Corps, and even manages to get the girl. Through it all he never loses his greatest ability – to open his mouth and put his foot in it.
Local trivia buff Serge Storms loves eliminating jerks and pests. His drug-addled partner Coleman loves cartoons. Hot stripper Sharon Rhodes loves cocaine, and they all want a suitcase full of stolen insurance money.
Welcome to Tim Dorsey's slice of America – where nobody gets out unscathed and untanned!
