Random House

Random House Dispatches from Random House, offering a glimpse into one of the world's most prestigious publishing houses. In 1925, Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer, two New Yorkers in their mid-twenties, acquired The Modern Library, a stable of classics and contemporary American works.

The company assumed the name Random House two years later when Cerf and Klopfer decided to publish a few books on the side, “at random.”

Today Random House is the proud publishing home of the world’s most acclaimed storytellers, thought leaders, and innovators. The Random House portfolio of imprints includes include Ballantine Books, Bantam Dell, Delacorte Press, Del Rey, The Dial Press, Modern Library, One World, Hogarth, Crown, Crown Archetype, Tim Duggan Books, Three Rivers Press, Broadway Books, Convergent, Currency, Crown Forum, Image, WaterBrook, Multnomah, Clarkson Potter, Ten Speed Press, Lorena Jones Books, Watson-Guptill, Ink & Willow, Harmony, Rodale, and, of course, the flagship imprint Random House. This diverse group of imprints publishes original fiction and nonfiction in all formats with the mission to entertain, educate, and inspire readers for generations.

Out today, the eagerly awaited follow-up to the #1 bestseller Hamilton: The Revolution, Lin-Manuel Miranda's new book gives readers an extraordinary inside look at In the Heights, his breakout Broadway debut, now a Hollywood blockbuster.

IN THE HEIGHTS: FINDING HOME reunites Miranda with Jeremy McCarter, co-author of Hamilton: The Revolution, and Quiara Alegría Hudes, the Pulitzer Prize–winning librettist of the Broadway musical and screenwriter of the film. They do more than trace the making of an unlikely Broadway smash and a major motion picture: They give readers an intimate look at the decades-long creative life of In the Heights.

We're still buzzing with excitement for these Pulitzer Prize finalists! Scroll down to learn more about Sierra Crane Murdoch + Cathy Park Hong's extraordinary books.

YELLOW BIRD: The gripping true story of a murder on an Indian reservation, and the unforgettable Arikara woman who becomes obsessed with solving it. Drawing on eight years of immersive investigation, Yellow Bird is an exquisitely written, masterfully reported story about a search for justice and a remarkable portrait of a complex woman.

MINOR FEELINGS: Poet and essayist Cathy Park Hong fearlessly and provocatively blends memoir, cultural criticism, and history into a ruthlessly honest, emotionally charged, and utterly original exploration of Asian American consciousness. With sly humor and a poet’s searching mind, Hong uses her own story as a portal into a deeper examination of racial consciousness in America today.
