Luna and Lola by Delacorta

2 x pre owned orange spine Penguins translated from the original cult crime fiction French into English in the early 80s. WARNING: These books centre on the relationship between a 13 year old girl who is frequently described in sexual terms and a man in his late 30s. Although it is made clear that no sexual intercourse occurs, their sharing of beds and nudity can be unsettling to discerning readers. 

  • LUNA: An outrageous adventure with Alba and Gorodish where Alba gets kidnapped off the Champs-Elysess and restrained in a large web in a nymph outfit while some psycho wears a human fly outfit trying to make insect love to her.
    Gorodish has to turn in 10 Rolls Royces as part of the ransom to free her. The Alba and Gorodish series are all surreal French crime stories.
  • LOLA: Alba & Serge set up a bus to gather info. One of the replies to their ad leads them to Lola, a heavy metal singer who's supposedly died. However, her father had hired someone to killer her but he ended up holding her hostage. He had trained a look-alike to be her. But Alba & Serge rescue her.

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
