Persephone Books reprints neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers. All of their 115 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 cookery books; each has an elegant grey jacket, a ‘fabric’ endpaper from the year that the book was written and each comes with a matching bookmark. For Selvedge's 12 Days of Christmas Competition, Persephone are offering 12 winners a six month subscription to Persephone Books. Choose six books to be sent, one each month.
