British Imports: Lost Gems and Pocket-Sized Reads

May 16, 2020

This week we are highlighting a selection of our British imports—collections of short fiction and essays from classic to contemporary writers, from Penguin Modern Classics and Faber Fiction to Persephone’s rediscovery of lost gems. Some of them are hip pocket-sized editions for short attention span reading, some are beautifully designed paperbacks for digging into writers you might not yet be familiar with. You can imagine you are browsing a charming English independent bookshop.

And, with each purchase you get a lovely Persephone bookmark, gratis. We hope you find something to strike your fancy.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
