At Waterstones, non-fiction buyer Bea Carvalho said the surge in fiery books was part of a wider interest in nature writing and the outdoors, where sales had continued to rise. Carvalho also pointed to “a huge wealth of new publishing on outdoor survival” this year, with Grylls’s How to Stay Alive “set to be a bestseller this Christmas”. She predicted that titles such as The Art of Fire and The Little Book of Building Fires “could establish themselves as excellent quirky gift options, in the same vein as Norwegian Wood in 2015”.

The Little Book of Building Fires by Yorkshire author Sally Coulthard looks all set to be one of the best-selling books of the season. It is a brilliantly informative guide with stylish illustrations and includes everything from where to find wood and which trees burn best to splitting logs, banking up and making your fire fragrant.
