It's our One Year Anniversary October 1st! Read on...
Welcome to Detour Books
October 1, 2021 is our One Year Anniversary and we're starting the celebration NOW with these gifts for you - click here. Watch for sales throughout the site or just go to the Sale Collection.
We offer world literature in English translation with a focus on Yiddish writers as well as a diverse group of authors, stories and subject matter in art. The goal is to remain small and put a spotlight on a finely curated selection of books for adults and children that are relevant in the moment and historically.
September - finally. And this year we have a selection of small and full size wall calendars. See them here.
Glad you found us. Feedback is always welcome. As you'll see we thrive on poetry, too.
You've heard of tiny houses? Well, you've landed in a tiny marketplace.
Out of Print
Yiddish translations are on the rise. They also go out of print at an alarming rate. Detour Books: Found in Translation is devoted to tracking these titles, writers and translators and keeping their books in the hands of readers.
