Mid May 2020 - because of the lockdown, it it still taking longer than usual for your order to be sent out – but the delay is lessening!
Best wishes from all at Persephone Books


Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers. All of our 135 books are intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written and are chosen to appeal to busy people wanting titles that are neither too literary nor too commercial. We publish novels, short stories, diaries, memoirs and cookery books; each has an elegant grey jacket, a ‘fabric’ endpaper with matching bookmark, and a preface by writers such as Jilly Cooper, David Kynaston and Elaine Showalter.
