City of Asylum Books

Specializing in translations, from children’s books and cookbooks to literature from around the world.  Plus unique shelves featuring books by publisher — like New Directions, Archipelago, Dalkey Archive, the New York Review of Books, Copper Canyon, and Ugly Duckling — and the entire collection of the Library of America, thanks to the donation of LOA Patron Lewis Bernard. Mostly new books but also a selection of “pre-owned” with low mileage.  And a selection of first editions, including many Nobel Prize winners dating back 100 years.
