Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly women) writers. Each one in our collection of 104 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 ten 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) nine e-books.
The Financial Times (Style section referred to 'the silver-jacketed world of Persephone Books: a chic women's press that publishes forgotten classics by neglected authors.' (Btw, it's fine to shop last minute chez us – we are open normal hours the week of Dec.16th, 10-6 on the 23rd and 10-2 on the 24th.)
