We are currently unable to import books from America because of the lockdown. So if we don’t have what you’re looking for in the bookshop and our distributor doesn’t have it in stock, we may not be able to procure that item for you. Imports from the UK have now resumed, but deliveries might take longer than usual.
We have an extensive and ever-growing collection of new, English-language books including classics and modernist/postmodernist masterpieces as well as more recent titles and current publications (many of which have either won or at least been shortlisted for various prizes) by Anglophone fiction authors. In case we don’t have the book you’re looking for in stock, we can order it for you and most of the time you’ll be able to collect it already the next working day. We also have a small number of German, Turkish and World Literature titles in English along with books on/set in Berlin and Istanbul/Turkey. Furthermore, we have quite a few English-language non-fiction/general-interest/coffee table books on music, film and fine arts. Last but certainly not the least, we offer a limited but very good (i.e. hand-picked) collection of scholarly or theoretical titles (Verso, Pluto, Semiotext(e), Zed, Bloomsbury, etc.) which we are very keen to expand. Indeed, we are among the few retailers of Pavement Books in Germany. So in case you’re interested in current affairs, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies or psychogeography books, or if you’re searching for, say, continental philosophy, feminist/post-colonial critique, post-structuralist theory or Marxist politics/political economy titles in English please drop by. We can order most titles for you and inform you substantially about the books in stock or make recommendations as we have postgraduate qualifications in such matters.
