"There's always another Pocket book!"

Set up in 1962 under the name of "Presses Pocket", Pocket is a publisher of paperback collections that cover all the different genres of fiction and non-fiction. It is one of France's leading paperback publishers, and its regular growth is a result of ongoing editorial work that aims at diversifying its range of authors, titles and genres, in keeping with its consistently high standards.

Pocket's catalogue is highly eclectic. Its editorial policy is author-based, with bestsellers in general literature by, among others, Marc Levy, Douglas Kennedy, Lauren Weisberger, Jean Teulé, Guillaume Musso and Yasmina Khadra. There are also thrillers by Harlan Coben, Franck Thilliez, Maxime Chattam and John Grisham, along with detective novels by Elizabeth George and Martha Grimes. Romantic literature occupies a prominent place in the catalogue, with Danielle Steel as its leading light.

Pocket also publishes non-fiction, in particular documents and first-hand accounts of society and the contemporary world, memoirs of celebrities, artists, explorers and politicians. In science fiction and fantasy literature, Pocket is a leading actor, with such renowned authors as J.R.R.Tolkien, Dan Simmons, Frank Herbert, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Isaac Asimov.

Pocket also publishes collections such as Pocket Evolution, with a broad range of titles in the fields of positive psychology, health and wellbeing, as well as Agora and Terre Humaine Poche, with major texts in the human sciences. Finally, the Pocket Classiques collection proposes a (re)discovery of major texts accompanied by critical notes, and unabridged texts at €1.50 that are indispensable to students and teachers.
Since 1973, Langues Pour Tous has been the key collection for the general and professional language markets. It offers a complete, coherent, integrated range of texts for learning and practising languages. Its catalogue has over 200 titles in 20 languages, with works of fiction in bilingual versions, appealing both to beginners and to those who have already attained a certain level of proficiency.
