'Barefoot bookseller' sought to run island bookshop in Maldives

Sep 24 2020

For those in dismay at the prospect of wet, dark evenings and social isolation this autumn, a luxury desert island resort in the Maldives is looking for a live-in bookseller to start next month.

The eco resort of Soneva Fushi, on Kunfunadhoo Island in the Maldives, has played host to three “barefoot booksellers” since 2018: the most recent, Chrissy Ryan, left in April as the coronavirus pandemic swept the world. But with the Maldives reopening to international visitors, Soneva Fushi is now in need of a bookseller to run a small shop on the private island, with the contract set to run from the end of October until after Easter.
