About

Desperate Literature is an international bookshop in the heart of Madrid.

We specialise in used, new and rare English, Spanish and French language books, building community across these literatures.

In our aim to be the home of a diverse literary community we run multilingual events, we hosted Madrid's first English language poetry festival in 2019 and we will soon be launching the fourth iteration of the Desperate Literature Prize for Short Fiction, which has boasted judges such as Rachel Cusk, Ottessa Moshfegh and Claire-Louise Bennett. 

It's our hope to continue growing via Patreon, offering friends near and far an opportunity to stay involved and to help keep us moving through the COVID era.
