‘The perfect bookshop in which to browse, where staff delight in making intelligent recommendations based on books you have read and enjoyed.’ – Sir Terence Conran

For anyone of a certain age, walking into John Sandoe Books is a wonderfully nostalgic experience. Tucked away on Blacklands Terrace just off the King’s Road, it is a proper, old-fashioned bookshop.

In a charming tradition, every year in the run-up to Christmas John Sandoe publishes 1000 copies of a specially commissioned short work through the Cuckoo Press. Given away free, these are mostly short stories, but they have also featured first chapters of novels, poetry collections and memoirs; the contributors read like a who’s who of literature, among them Javier Marias, Dame Muriel Spark, William Boyd, Julian Mitchell, Arabella Boxer and Edna O’Brien.
