Grove Atlantic

Grove Atlantic has been publishing books at the forefront of the American literary and publishing scene for more than seventy-five years. Founded in 1917, Atlantic Monthly Press is one of two hardcover imprints of Grove Atlantic. As a book publishing imprint borne out of the venerable Atlantic Monthly magazine, AMP won numerous Pulitzer Prizes and National Book Awards and included the bestselling titles Mutiny on the Bounty; Goodbye, Mr. Chips; Ship of Fools; Fire in the Lake; The Soul of a New Machine; and Blue Highways. In 1986, the press was separated from the magazine by new owners and established as a fully independent publishing house. Under this new leadership in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the press published such authors as Raymond Carver, Ron Chernow (National Book Award 1990), J. P. Donleavy, Richard Ford, Francisco Goldman, Jay McInerney, P. J. O’Rourke, Rian Malan, Jeanette Winterson, Tobias Wolff, Sherman Alexie, Mark Bowden, and Charles Frazier. Grove Press is a hardcover and paperback imprint of Grove Atlantic. GP was founded on Grove Street in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1947, but its true beginning came in 1951 when twenty-eight-year-old Barney Rosset Jr. bought the company and turned it into one of the most influential publishers of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Publishing eight Nobel laureates, Grove Press brought to national prominence the art and artists of the counterculture and of the post-World War II disillusionment in Europe and America: the San Francisco and New York poets, the New York "action" painters, the French Surrealists, the German Expressionists, the dramatists of the Absurd. Authors include Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Tom Stoppard, Jean Genet, Jerzy Kosinski, Richard Flanagan, Barry Hannah, Henry Miller, Kenzaburo Oe, and Man Booker prize-winners Kiran Desai and Anne Enright. Fighting many of the key censorship laws in publishing Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence and Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller, Grove’s books have broken down barriers of sexual morality and introduced American audiences to foreign writers at a pace that has yet to be matched by any other U.S. publisher. In February 1993, Grove Press and Atlantic Monthly Press merged to form Grove Atlantic, Inc.

'Why We Can't Sleep' explores what a midlife crisis looks like for Gen X women

Ada Calhoun speaking to NBC News: “I was having a really horrible summer. All this freelance work fell apart — three different projects fell apart for totally different reasons — it was my whole income for the next 6 months. I was the breadwinner, I had a stepson going to college and a son going into middle school, and I just felt old, awful and tired. I got a call from an editor saying that she'd been trying to get someone to do a story about Generation X women, and what was going on with us. I really was feeling it so much in that moment so I wrote that story for Oprah.com, and then it went viral. I started getting these messages from women who also really did feel it. That made me feel wonderful. Then, I got asked to do it as a book.”

That book, WHY WE CAN’T SLEEP, just debuted on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Read more about it here, and buy your copy wherever generationally necessary books are sold.

Author Ada Calhoun dishes on writing the book that seeks to redefine the midlife crisis — and the things that keep Gen X women up at night.

'Wilmington's Lie' Author Traces The Rise Of White Supremacy In A Southern City

“This was not only a coup. It was a revolution.”

David Zucchino talks with Fresh Air with Terry Gross about WILMINGTON’S LIE, the stunning new book in which he tells the story of the 1898 white supremacist coup that struck fear into North Carolina’s largest city.

Don’t miss this.

Journalist David Zucchino says Wilmington, N.C., was once a mixed-race community with a thriving black middle class. Then, in 1898, white supremacists staged a murderous coup that changed everything.

'Why We Can't Sleep' Documents The Unique Pressures On Gen X Women

“Well, I think we were taught that the American dream was real and that that was something that, if we worked hard enough, we could achieve. And I think Generation X women in particular have been really good at working incredibly hard. And yet the statistic that I heard from the Equality of Opportunity Project at Harvard said that only one in four Gen X women will outearn her father. So there’s always numbers that I just kept coming across that really show that it’s not just us. It’s not just us not working hard enough, not doing enough, that actually there are these forces at work against us.”

The amazing Ada Calhoun stopped by NPR Morning Edition to talk about her brand-new book, WHY WE CAN’T SLEEP: Women’s New Midlife Crisis.

Ada Calhoun talked to a lot of Gen X women about the angst they feel as they approach midlife — the pressure to have it all and the feeling that they should have done better for themselves.

“[FENTANYL, INC.] is one of the first to address what the Centers for Disease Control has called the ‘third wave’ of the opioid crisis: first OxyContin, then heroin, and now fentanyl and its analogues… There is consolation in clarity, and the achievement of Westhoff’s book is to press [its] sprawling cast and the forces that gave rise to it into something like a coherent narrative, forming legible patterns out of widespread chaos.”

Wonderful review of Ben Westhoff’s FENTANYL, INC. in The Nation Magazine!

When White Supremacists Overthrew an Elected Government

“Today we Americans find ourselves struggling with the ghosts of our past. Some among us reach for histories that affirm the established view of who we are as a nation. Many believe the United States is, and must always be, a white nation. But moments of storm and stress also occasion the telling of different stories. We have seen this with The New York Times’s 1619 Project. Now we have David Zucchino’s brilliant new book.”

Absolutely wowed and delighted by Dr. Eddie S. Glaude Jr.’s stunning review of WILMINGTON’S LIE (on sale now!) in The New York Times. In meticulous prose, Zucchino—a Pultizer Prize-winner and Times contributor himself—gives the riveting account of an important, shameful, and too-little-remembered event in American history. Read, and learn.

David Zucchino’s “Wilmington’s Lie” tells the forgotten history of a coup against a multiracial government in North Carolina.

“Found Wanting”

“A charm of third-year girls were being held inside for detention—their hell was my harbor. They were making beaded bracelets for boys they fancied, an idea they had bastardized from the American teen-agers on our televisions. They were weaving red, white, and royal blue; proudly sectarian, Protestant colors. Despite the aggressive hues, it was still unmistakably jewelry, and no boy in Glasgow could wear it without fear of swift violence. But the girls seemed happy and were unusually focussed.”

Douglas Stuart’s debut novel, SHUGGIE BAIN, is already receiving acclaim from writers like Richard Russo and Sandra Newman. While you await its February 11th release, you can whet your appetite with “Found Wanting,” a dazzling new story published by The New Yorker.

Fiction by Douglas Stuart: “He reached behind my left ear and caressed my earlobe, as though he were tucking my hair behind it. I was rigid with inexperience.”

Author Sarah Broom on 'The Yellow House' and putting New Orleans East on the map

“I felt moved and buoyed by the idea that I could write something that didn’t exist. And that there’s a little girl right now, still living on the short end of the street in New Orleans East where i grew up. I wrote it for her, so that there could be some history already in existence. One of the striking things about New Orleans East is the way in which it doesn’t always appear on a map of New Orleans. I wanted to quite literally put New Orleans east on the map.”

Sarah M. Broom, author of the National Book Award-winning THE YELLOW HOUSE, talks with PBS NewsHour about her hometown, her family, and her acclaimed book, in which she offers a penetrating meditation on both.

Sarah Broom’s 2019 memoir, “The Yellow House,” won the National Book Award for non-fiction. Jeffrey Brown sits down with Broom to discuss her mother and how an obsession with houses passed down two generations to the author herself, why Broom doesn’t appear until 100 pages into the book and ...

Finding Nuance and Much-Needed Relief in the Writing of Bharati Mukherjee

“How strange it was to hold JASMINE at that cool distance, to set myself up for a story I had seen a thousand times before, then to crack it open and find my own face staring back at me. Sure, it was the story of Jyoti/Jasmine/Jane, a woman who shed names and identities to simply keep surviving every day in America. And yes, she was an undocumented immigrant while I had been born in the US, Hindu where I was Christian, 22 and pregnant to my 16 and inexperienced. But that didn’t matter nearly as much as what I saw in front of me: a brown body stranded in the middle of the country, a dark spot on acres and acres of whiteness. A woman required to explain to neighbors, bank tellers, teachers, grocers, even children, where she was from, to endure their free associations about that place, to cook its food so that they might pride themselves on eating it. To keep telling herself that they were good despite all of this. To admit, in a single sentence that took my breath away the first time I read it: ‘This country has so many ways of humiliating, of disappointing.’”

When I was growing up, the idea that I might need to see myself in the stories I read was framed as unsophisticated at best, narcissistic at worst. Yet, in America in the late 1980s, a good portion…

“Underpinning all my work is the assertion, ‘We are here and this is who we are. And who we are is a myriad of things and not necessarily what you expect.’”

The one and only Bernardine Evaristo, author of the Booker Prize-winning GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER, talks with Anderson Tepper at Vanity Fair about drawing inspiration from Toni Morrison and Ntozake Shange, Black British history, the possibility of TV adaptations, and much more.

She is a known quantity in England, but she made global waves when her novel Girl, Woman, Other won the Man Booker Prize in October.

How Perumal Murugan Was Resurrected Through Writing

“Though we are technically reading the story of a goat, we could just as well be reading about a female laborer caught in a reproductive economy in which her experience of love is real and yet fleeting, her voice never silent and yet unheard.”

In The New Yorker, Amitava Kumar talks with India’s Perumal Murugan, and discusses his brand-new novel, THE STORY OF A GOAT, translated from the Tamil by N. Kalyan Raman and on sale now.

The Indian writer, whose book “Poonachi” will be published in the U.S. this month as “The Story of a Goat,” is a chronicler of the ordinary, able to create a sense of intimacy with the pastoral with a frank, brutal tone.

The Best Crime Novels of the Year

In The New York Times, Marilyn Stasio names THE OLD SUCCESS, Martha Grimes’s latest, one of the 10 Best Crime Novels of the year!

“Martha Grimes’s THE OLD SUCCESS takes its name from a real-life British pub, as do all of her charming Richard Jury novels. After a Frenchwoman’s body turns up on one of the Isles of Scilly, the story switches residence to a Northamptonshire pub. Here, Jury confers with his aristocratic friend, Melrose Plant, who keeps a most unusual menagerie that includes a goat named Aghast, a dog named Aggro and a horse named Aggrieved. Aha!”

Marilyn Stasio’s 2019 top 10 list includes a gruesome Danish serial-killer thriller, a missing-persons caper and a murder mystery set in the video-gaming world.

If you think Donald Trump is the first US president with ties to the legendary Mar-a-Lago estate, guess again. Preferably after reading this fascinating excerpt from Les Standiford’s PALM BEACH, MAR-A-LAGO, AND THE RISE OF AMERICA’S XANADU, up now at Town & Country.

Donald Trump isn't the first U.S. President to fall for the legendary Palm Beach estate.

Review | Perumal Murugan said his career as a novelist was dead. Lucky for us, he was wrong.

“Jumps nimbly from fantasy to realism to parable. How much it resonates with you will depend on the breadth of your sympathies and your interest in adult tales that include the thoughts and feelings of animal characters. The effect is not so much escapist fantasy as existential reflection… Fortunately, as THE STORY OF A GOAT demonstrates, just because we’ve put away childish things doesn’t mean we have to deny ourselves the strange pleasure of fiction in which animals articulate their own curious perspectives on their lives — and ours.”

A splendid review of THE STORY OF A GOAT—the latest from Perumal Murugan, author of the National Book Award-nominated ONE PART WOMAN—from the Washington Post’s inimitable own Ron Charles.

In “The Story of a Goat,” animals articulate their own curious perspectives on their lives — and ours.

The 10 Best Books of 2019

In which The New York Times Books declares Sarah M. Broom’s THE YELLOW HOUSE one of the 10 Best Books of the Year!

“In her extraordinary, engrossing debut, Broom pushes past the baseline expectations of memoir to create an entertaining and inventive amalgamation of literary forms. Part oral history, part urban history, part celebration of a bygone way of life, THE YELLOW HOUSE is a full indictment of the greed, discrimination, indifference and poor city planning that led her family’s home to be wiped off the map. Tracing the history of a single home in New Orleans East (an area ‘50 times the size of the French Quarter,’ yet nowhere to be found on most tourist maps, comprising scraps of real estate whites have passed over), from the ’60s to Hurricane Katrina, this is an instantly essential text, examining the past, present and possible future of the city of New Orleans, and of America writ large.”

The editors of The Times Book Review choose the best fiction and nonfiction titles this year.

In addition, Albert Woodfox was honored for his memoir about Angola.

The Wilderness of the Unfinished Manuscript

“I thought, at first, that I would simply follow the chain of the title to write an autobiography of a house. I had no idea of the tentacles, the ways in which the story would transfigure. I hadn’t known at the outset that I would ultimately need to find a foundation, a structure for the book solid enough to hold the story of my growing up on sinking and subsiding soil. Had not known how excruciating the task!”

Over at The Paris Review, Sarah M. Broom, remarkable author of the National Book Award-shortlisted THE YELLOW HOUSE, on living with a book before it’s finished being written.

I was in that hollow tunnel where no one asks anymore how the book is coming. I could no longer see the origin point.

“In this charming, zippy history of Palm Beach, Les Standiford charts the destination’s fortune from its founding in the 1800s to the modern day. All of the familiar Palm Beach characters, from Henry Flagler to Addison Mizner and Marjorie Merriweather Post, are on hand for a rollicking, informative lesson in real estate, American history, and current events.”

The editors of Town & Country urge you to read Les Standiford’s PALM BEACH, MAR-A-LAGO, AND THE RISE OF AMERICA’S XANADU — and they’re right! On sale now.

Buzzy novels, compulsively readable non-fiction tales, and a few guilty pleasures.

The Booker Prize Is Shared By The 12 Black Brits In 'Girl, Woman, Other'

“I take inspiration from Toni Morrison who, many years ago, would say: Yeah, I’m an African American women writer, and that’s the perspective from which I write, and there is nothing limiting about that… Being black British is being as diverse as any other demographic in society.”

The wonderful Bernardine Evaristo, author of the Booker Prize-winning GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER, spoke to NPR's Weekend Edition!

Bernardine Evaristo's new award-winning novel follows a dozen different characters, aged 19-93. "I wanted to put as many black British women into it as possible," the author says.

Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other Deserves All the Prizes

“Each of these characters—and indeed the doting spouses, or abusive girlfriends, or foul-mouthed school chums, or lecherous preachers, or the rest of the human parade—feels specific, and vibrant, and not quite complete, insofar as the best fictional characters remain as elusive and surprising as real people are… Yes, prizes are silly. But sometimes they’re deserved.”

Pretty delighted by Rumaan Alam’s review of GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER, the new, Booker Prize-winning novel from Bernardine Evaristo, now on sale in the US!

Unruly and unorthodox (and occasionally uneven), this year's Booker winner grapples with black identity.

Booker Prize Winner ‘Girl, Woman, Other’ Is Coming to America

“I just had this idea that I would put as many women as I could into a single book and somehow connect it all through x degrees of separation and see what happened with that. In a sense, you could almost call it an activist novel. I don’t feel, as a black British woman writer, that I would want to write a book just because I want to explore something about the human race. My mission is to write about the African diaspora. That’s what I’ve done with all my books. And so focusing on 12 black British women was my way of addressing our invisibility and also exploring our heterogeneity. There are probably about 800,000 black British women, and we’re all different.”

Bernardine Evaristo, on the heels of becoming the first black woman to win the Booker Prize for her novel GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER, and mere days before that book becomes available in the US (11/5!), speaks with The New York Times.

Bernardine Evaristo, the first black woman to win the literary award, talks about her mission to write about the African diaspora and why her novel involves 12 interconnected characters.

Public Letter to World Literary Awards https://russianmonarchy.blogspot.com/2019/05/world-literary-awards-nobel-prize-2018-novel-russian-monarchy-public-letter.html "Russian Monarchy" novel of Ganova Ludmila and murder of author in Putin's Russia. Novel about necessity of restoration legitimate monarchy of Romanovs in Russia. Public Letter to World Literary Award... Citation of writer Ganova Ludmila about her Novel "RUSSIAN MONARCHY": "A novel with such name "RUSSIAN MONARCHY" could appear only in our time because the Bolsheviks and the Communists stubbornly kept silent about the problem of royal power, shooting of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. Anyone who raising this question was also threatened of death. In this book you will find a variety of points of view expressed by different people who have found it necessary to express it ... This is primarily an Internet novel, discussions took place on the Echo of Moscow station and Hydepark sites. And the most important thing is that not a single word don't has been changed in their statement! It is very interesting to read them, and they, these statements, speak about the complexity of the problem raised, about modern life, about the most different ways of managing the state, about the mood of the society itself, about its openness, about publicity in it. In it, in this novel, even the point of view is expressed that the management of the Russian state can be transferred to the heirs of the royal family !!! As it was done in Spain by the dictator Franco. And what can get the Russian State as a result of such a transfer of power ...." "Much of this matter is amazes and surprises. Perhaps, the Russian public was forced to return to this issue, and the fact that after the execution of the Royal Family in Russia terrible times began: terrible wars, millions of people were killed and terrible famines began in Russia. The new revolutionary government failed to resolve any of these questions. This state of Russian society has lasted for a hundred years, and we unwittingly begin to compare the Russian Monarchy, which ruled Russia for several centuries and successfully ruled with the shortcomings of power that are characteristic of our modern society ..." "Modern political power in Russia is based on a terrible terroristic captured of legal political power by Bolsheviks in Russia and consequently illegal in Russia. And therefore apparently they is concerned that reign of the last Emperor Nikolay II, they constantly discredited him all the time. That is why V.I.Lenin is embalmed and placed in a sarcophagus on the main square of the country and no one is going to take away him from there. He became in many ways a symbol of this power. Let's not forget that he captured power in this country by violent, illegal revolutionary way." "WE TOUCHED TO VERY IMPORTANT SECRET OF RUSSIAN HISTORY: HOW WAS DESTROYED THE INSTITUTION OF HEREDITORY MONARCHICAL POWER IN RUSSIA AND TO THE PROBLEM OF IT'S RESTORATION IN RUSSIA. OVER THE 100 YEARS THAT HAVE PASSED SINCE THIS TERRIBLE MURDER (ILLEGAL MURDER) OBVIOUSLY, BY LENIN ORDER.

What’s the deal with the book by Randall Sullivan the curse of oak island? I can’t find the hardcover anywhere.
/p1
Absolutely absurd that you would publish a book from a self-prescribed stalker. Having been someone who was attacked by an author because she did not like my review, it is absurd that you find it “hilarious” and want to profit off of it. Thank you for making the decision easy for me to never read a book from your imprint.
#HaleNo! I won't be buying anymore of your books. I always check the publisher before I press buy, and I'll make sure you don't get any of my money. You have no ethics. You only care about money. Why would any readers, reviewers, or bloggers support you when you support someone who would stalk, harass, and humiliate one of them? You've chosen sides, and it's the wrong side. You should have chosen the readers' side since those are your customers.
I just read that you offered Kathleen Hale a book deal. As a victim of stalking, I’m enraged. As a friend currently supporting a victim of stalking through her ordeal, I’m furious. Do you realize just what the implications are of doing such a thing? Already, stalking isn’t taken seriously by law enforcement. If a woman is stalked by anyone other than a jealous lover, as happened to me and still happening to one of my best friends, she’s usually told by law enforcement to “work it out” with her stalker. Most friends of the victim don’t even think the situation warrants it, when in reality, it costs someone effectively everything. My friend lost her job thanks to her stalker. Hasn’t left her house in months. Law enforcement won’t take her seriously. Her life has become hell and the situation is still ongoing. And now you are publishing a stalker’s essays? You granting Kathleen Hale that book deal only further minimizes the victims’ suffering at their stalkers’ actions and gives law enforcement an additional free pass in dismissing their plight. I’m not even going on what it does to current victims who struggle to even be taken seriously. Instead of a book deal, Hale needed to get arrested for the stalking, and therapy for whatever underlying issues caused her to go off the rails. Thank you for legitimizing stalking behavior, Grove Atlantic. When Ms. Hale gets sued, I hope you will be included. I will also edit to add that you granting her a book deal flies right in the face of the Son of Sam law, which is the standard that came up after David Berkowitz attempted to write a book about his murders. It was decided in court that criminals may not profit off writing stories about their crimes. You would do well to read up on that law and cancel this travesty of a book deal, as stalking is in fact a criminal act. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_Sam_law
I'm shocked that you would stoop so low to publish a book, by a criminal, about her crimes!! You are just rewarding behavior, that would've gotten her thrown in jail, had her victim reported her, or pressed charges. Now it's supposed to be some light hearted read about her escapades, like she was describing a day of shopping!? I am researching all of my books from here on out, and if you're the publisher, I won't be buying. Disgraceful. I will be letting all my book reading friends know about this. You can bet it won't be pretty.
Disgusting how you guys are rewarding criminal behaviour such as stalking. The blogger gave up something that I'm sure she loved due to this horrible woman's actions. Meanwhile she is profiting from it!
