An introduction to our shop’s literary heritage
About this book parcel:
Your introduction to the talented British writers who loved our shop - some of whom helped to make it famous.

We delight in sharing this selection of quintessentially Heywood Hill books with our customers.

Christopher Isherwood, Goodbye to Berlin
Anthony Powell, A Question of Upbringing
Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited
James Lees-Milne, Diaries, 1942-1954
Diana Cooper, Darling Monster

Patrick Leigh Fermor and Deborah Devonshire, In Tearing Haste
Jane Gardam, Old Filth
John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
‘Since 1936, Heywood Hill has attracted writers, artists, and thinkers, and we are very proud of that. Cyril Connolly once said the place was clogged with literary ghosts (Nancy causes us particular trouble). Nothing much has changed now, except the writers and publishers who call into the shop every day of the week are very much alive.’ - Zoe Dickey, Bookseller
