Sometimes at Oasis, we receive a donation that is so interesting that we believe it's worth advertising the items specially. We recently received a very generous donation of books, all of which are already on the shelves and include some really worthwhile literary classics and modern classics. There are some great deals for English Lit students as we also give a 10% student discount. The collection is now collated and for sale in a special section. Among the titles are works by:

Margaret Atwood; Jane Austen; Elizabeth Bowen; Anita Brookner; Isabelle Colegate; Colette; Ivy Compton Burnett; Anita Desai; Margaret Forster; Jane Gardam; Linda Grant; Shirley Hazzard; Susan Hill; Elizabeth Jane Howard; Maxine Hong Kingston; Mollie Keane; Rosamond Lehmann; Penelope Lively; Alison Lurie; Rose Macaulay; Hilary Mantel; Valerie Martin; Alice Munro; Joyce Carol Oates; Ruth Prawer Jhabvala; Jayne Anne Phillips; Annie Proulx; Jean Rhys; Mary Renault; Bernice Rubens; Rabindranath Tagore; Amy Tan; Elizabeth Taylor; Barbara Trapido; Anne Tyler; Jayne Smiley; Eudora Welty; Mary Wesley; Edith Wharton; Virginia Woolf (quite extensive collection of hers); and many Virago Modern Classics.

These can all be found at our Amen Corner shop (234-250 Mitcham Rd, SW17 9NT), opposite the Tooting Police station and very close to Tooting overground station. Great value from £1 each…
