Gift Subscription


Every year Peirene publishes three novellas in translation and sends them directly to subscribers. We search high and low for the most exciting new voices from around the world, and introduce them to English-language readers. A one year novella subscription is the perfect surprise gift for a loved one. Gift subscribers also benefit from 15% off all Peirene books and subscriptions – so it’s a gift that keeps on giving!

Gift recipients will receive our latest release upon publication, followed by the next two books to be published. A gift note can be added at checkout. Free p&p within the UK. International postage costs apply.

‘A class act’ – The Guardian

‘The foreign literature specialist’ – The Sunday Times

‘Literary cinema for those fatigued by film’ – Times Literary Supplement
