This year we published Suzette Field's A Curious Invitation: The Forty Greatest Parties in Literature. Parties are at the heart of literature, they're where the drama happens; this book is a compendium of who was there, what they wore, what was eaten and who said what to whom. In tribute to all the festivities in the book, we've asked our authors to tell us a little about their best parties, real and fictional.
Read extracts from Picador's featured books, including Solaceby Belinda McKeon, winner of the Irish Book of the Year 2011, and At Lastby Edward St Aubyn, the fifth novel in the critically acclaimed Patrick Melrose series.
