Marrowbone Books

is a small second-hand bookshop in Dublin 8. We have a good selection of good books. Mostly fiction. Mostly paperbacks. Mostly pretty cheap. We don’t have everything, but we usually have the good stuff.

– Our anthology, The Globe and Scales, has been reprinted at long last and is back in stock in the shop and online.

Memorial for Alison Lurie, 1926-2020

– We'll be publishing Chris Beausang's debut novel, Tunnel of Toads, imminently.
