Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers. Each one in our collection of 107 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) twenty e-books.
We are pleased to be one of Buzz Feed's 14 Beautiful Independent Bookshops in London.
Please note that we are closed on Saturdays in August. And will be CLOSED entirely from August 9th-17th.
Details of The Persephone Prize are available on our website here.
