Bookshop Retail Manager

Natalia is the manager of the London Review Bookshop. Before that, she helped to found an independent children’s bookshop called Under the Greenwood Tree, which possibly explains her enthusiasm for bubble wands and bang snaps. She loves big novels, good movies and beer with chilli.
