About Avenue Victor Hugo Books

For nearly 30 years Avenue Victor Hugo was a fixture on Newbury Street in Boston. In 2004, we closed our brick and mortar bookshop, but continued to serve our customers online.

In the interim we moved our stock to a warehouse in Abington, Massachusetts for ten years, and then finally to a barn in Lee New Hampshire.

This summer (2017), we had planned to open our new location at 1 Lee Hill Road in Lee, New Hampshire to the public, starting with one day a week and then expanding hours from there. Unfortunately, Summer has fled and there is still more work to be done to make our old barn accessible. We’ll begin accepting browsers on Saturdays and expand our hours as soon as possible, but that is not likely before summer’s end. Please check for a new schedule.

Our current stock of over 25,000 books, covering almost every subject category, and naturally includes a preponderance of fiction in all genres. In addition, we still have a large selection of history and biography as well as literary reference.

Recently we have begun to add selected periodicals which have been too long in storage, please search our catalog at AbeBooks.com for new additions.

In addition, we have a brother site at VincentMcCaffrey.com for extra-curricular literary matters. There, one of the proprietors, Vincent McCaffrey,  posts portions of his novels, various short stories, unquiet essays, and anecdotes.

Please take note that we are now offering signed copies of Vince’s new novel, The Dark Heart of Night. We also have signed copies still available of both Hound and Slepyng Hound to Wake, published by Small Beer Press.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with your requests or suggestions.
