Restless books Mission

Our MissionOur TeamOur History


Restless Books is an independent, nonprofit publisher devoted to championing essential voices from unexpected places and vantages, whose stories speak to us across linguistic and cultural borders. We seek extraordinary international literature that feeds our restlessness: our curiosity about the world, passion for other cultures and languages, and eagerness to explore beyond the confines of the familiar. Our books—fiction, narrative nonfiction, journalism, memoirs, travel writing, and young people’s literature—offer readers an expanded understanding of a changing world.
