Sisyphe Description

Raffles’ fancy new bookstore Sisyphe is a haven for book nerds with shelves upon shelves of titles that span genres. But don’t expect many English-language books – we only spotted one row that appeared to be mostly classics. (Think Kafka, Jane Austen, Emily Brontë and Daniel Defoe.) While Sisyphe’s book selection may lack foreigner-friendly titles, the store has a gift selection that’s likely to appeal to all. A comfy-looking cafe makes up the rest of the space. Sisyphe first opened in Guizhou in 1993 and is now one of the biggest private bookstore chains in China. Other Beijing Sisyphe locations include Solana and Glory Mall in Chongwenmen.
