In this era of downloads and internet shopping, more and more people are deprived of the joy of browsing through racks of cds, looking for bargains, surprises, or just that special recording.

Grove Music, downstairs at The Grove Bookshop, offers a wide range of classical new releases, jazz on cd and vinyl, and a back catalogue of classic recordings in folk, jazz, classical and rock music. Rediscover the joy of browsing in our cosy basement shop.


Persephone and Peirene Press

Wed 6th Mar 13

Many customers have expressed an interest in the classic reprints and occasional new titles from Persephone Press, so we now have a selection of their books on sale, including wartime stories by Molly Panter-Downes, novels by Marghanita Laski and Dorothy Whipple, and the journals of Virginia Woolf and Vere Hodgson, as well as classic short stories from Elizabeth Taylor and other wonderful writers.

To provide a contrast to these volumes we have also started stocking books from Peirene Press, who specialise in contemporary European fiction in translation. Like Persephone, they pride themselves on producing attractively bound books with bookmarks, and we currently have novels by Pia Juul, Friedrich Christian Delius and several others, offering customers the chance to see what readers on the continent are talking about at the moment.
