website, plans for a bookshop tour in a 1957 Morris Traveller filled with Persephone books & the enticing thought of commemorative Emma Bridgewater-designed goodies to buy. The new website is well worth a look. The books have been sorted into categories that make it very easy to find a particular area of interest - from WWII to Country Life, Diaries to Social Comedy. This is also a great help when shopping for presents.
here. I also took part in Persephone Reading Week & showed off my Persephone collection here. And I spent Sunday afternoon looking back at the very first Persephone Quarterlys, remembering the excitement I felt when I discovered this publisher that reprinted books I was desperate to read, often by authors new to me.
Persephone Books nos 99 & 100 will be Patience, a novel by John Coates & The Persephone Book of Short Stories. I'm looking forward to reading both of these very much &, in the meantime, I have several unread Persephones on the tbr shelves including The Winds of Heaven by Monica Dickens & No Surrender by Constance Maud.
Congratulations Persephone on the publication of Book no 100. May there be many more to come.
