The festive season is well and truly upon us, my dears—and if you’ve left your shopping till the last minute, fear not, as all your essential Yuletide gifts can be found here at Malvern Books! We’re open every day until the 25th (with a slightly early closing time of 6pm on Christmas Eve), and to make your present-purchasing a little easier, we’re also offering a stupendously generous Holiday Gift Card Offer—for every $40 you spend, you’ll receive a $10 gift card. (Please note, the gift card can not be used on the day of purchase.)
As for what to buy… well, there are plenty of handsome new arrivals featured on our home page, but here are a few more top picks for the beloved bookworms in your life:
Brooklyn’s Ugly Duckling Presse recently released Hit Parade, a bilingual Russian-English collection of poems by Semyon Khanin, Vladimir Svetlov, Sergej Timofejev, and Artur Punte, the four most acclaimed members of the Orbita creative collective, based in Riga, Latvia. Lyn Hejinian called Hit Parade “one of the best collections of poetry I’ve ever encountered,” so it’s a pretty safe bet that your favorite poetry lover is going to appreciate these greatest hits.
Last week we eagerly unpacked a new order from Chax, a Texan indie press founded in 1984 and dedicated to “increasing the impact of new writing in our culture.” We received a host of awesome titles, including Reason and Other Women by Alice Notley, The Complete Light Poems by Jackson Mac Low, Andalusia by Susan Thackrey, and Linh Dinh’s Some Kind of Cheese Orgy, which might just be the most enticing book title ever.
And don’t forget our lovely sidelines! We have holiday cards, t-shirts, mugs, bookmarks, and beautiful Leuchtturm notebooks in a wide range of colors.
