Persephone Books

Persephone Books takes its name after the queen of the Underworld in Greek mythology. A clever decision, since this bookshop offers out-of-print titles penned by 20th century women writers who have been forgotten, overlooked, or left underground. The bookshop offers a wide selection of unique titles, from novels and short story collections to journals.
