We’re moving! As Saqi Books settles into our new offices, it will only be possible to purchase eBook editions of our publications directly from us on our website. But watch this space, purchases of print editions will be available again in the next month. In the meantime, you can find our books at www.bookshop.org and at all good bookshops. Thank you for your patience. We look forward to serving you again very soon.
