About once a month, in the pre-Covid-19 world, we were lucky enough to host some of our favourite writers, in a small space upstairs at the shop, and began to make these talks available as podcasts in 2019. We still cannot invite authors to speak in the shop in the current circumstances, but we have continued making recordings and podcasts.

In the last few months our speakers and interviews have included Hisham Matar, Caroline Moorehead, David Mitchell, Loyd Grossman, William Dalrymple, Judith Herrin, Martin Latham and William Boyd: we are hugely grateful to them all.  We have many more such podcasts planned for the coming months.

Listen to the most recent episode below, or find us on Spotify and Apple Podcasts to hear them all.

SELINA HASTINGS:  Sybille Bedford: An Appetite for Life
Selina Hastings is the first biographer of Sybille Bedford – bonne vivante, European, and Sandoe’s customer – and her new book is one of our most pre-ordered titles this year. We are delighted that she has agreed to do a podcast with us. Email, telephone, or order online if you would like a signed copy.
