Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers. Each one in our collection of 110 books is intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written, and most are perfect presents or a good choice for reading groups. We sell all our books by mail order or in our shop, however the eleven Persephone Classics are widely available in bookshops in the UK and the US; we also sell five of our titles as audiobooks and (so far) twenty e-books.
Persephone Books (no. 9 in BuzzFeed's list of 14 Beautiful Independent Bookshops in London) reopens on Monday 29th at 10 a.m. and is then open as normal (although closed on New Year's Day); our website has recovered from being hacked but please be patient while we restore content; the Persephone Diary for 2015. is available here.
