“My span on earth is all but taken,
But lest too soon I join the dead,
I need to know when I awaken:
I’ll see you in the day ahead”
It was Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin who wrote those immortal lines.
Well, Pushkin wrote them but it is Russian Bookstore #21 that brings you his books, as well as thousands of others.
The only Russian bookstore in Manhattan, this place is truly a literary mecca. Treat yourself to a wide selection of classical literature, as well as contemporary prose and poetry. Historical and mystery novels are not to be missed. Not to mention children’s books, so useful for your kids and their Russian skills. And many other genres!
For non-Manhattan shoppers – there is a major online presence. Select the books you like and receive them in the mail within days. That’s not how Pushkin did his shopping… But then again – he did not live in Manhattan either!
