Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers. All of their 128 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. They publish novels, short stories, diaries, memoirs and cookbooks; 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.
They sell their books mostly through their website but also have a shop in London.
