Time Out says

For more than 20 years, this politically outspoken bookshop has ploughed its radical furrow. Fans include writers like Alan Bissett, Kathleen Jamie and AL Kennedy, comedian Mark Thomas and poet Benjamin Zephaniah. It's the base of operations for both the Edinburgh Book Fringe and the annual Edinburgh International Radical Book Fair and it’s the prime place to pick up signed copies of James Kelman novels or, perhaps, the latest analysis of nationalism in Europe by Czech historian and theorist Miroslav Hroch.



Address: 43-45 West Nicolson Street
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 10am-6pm, Sun noon-5pm
