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.
