Purchase a copy of The Pleasures of Leisure by Robert Dessaix during the month of August and receive a voucher for a hot drink* redeemable at our Afterword Café. 

This thoughtful and witty book shows us how taking leisure seriously gives us back our freedom – to enjoy life, to revel in it, in fact; to deepen our sense of who we are as human beings. Robert explains how we can reclaim our right to ‘rest well’, and to loaf, groom, nest and play, as he looks at leisure from many angles: reading, walking, travelling, learning languages, taking siestas and simply doing nothing.

* the fine print:

Voucher valid one month from date of purchase. Valid for regular standard coffee, tea of hot chocolate. (charges apply for updates, spicy hot chocolates or soy.) No BBC/XYZ/Ferret points will be allocated for your drink. You must present your voucher as proof of purchase when redeeming your drink or you will be charged full price.
