The bookish monkey is a small bronze statuette of a monkey reading a book, purchased from a shop in Rennes a few years ago. He sits on my desk in front of my computer monitor, and reminds me periodically that I could be actually reading a book instead of editing this blog.

I’m a bookseller in Manchester in the north-west of England. Any views expressed here are personal to me and do not represent those of my employer.

    Dear Bookish Monkey,

    Thankyou for mentioning the ‘Fiction in Translation’ night I’ve organised at Waterstone’s Hampstead.

    I mentioned your blog to Dalkey Archive and they love it.

    Much appreciated,
    Pete Law

    Aw shucks. That’s very kind of you, Pete. Would you please tell Dalkey Archive that I love them too? Good luck with the event, as well.
