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.

Review | A far deeper, worthier and more interesting JFK

"Why should you read the umpteenth book about the most famous of Kennedys? Whole forests have been cut down to explain the Kennedy myth. The short answer is that Logevall’s book is smart and very readable...At more than 600 pages of text, his book is long and ends four years before Kennedy is elected president. But this reader had trouble putting it down." ––Washington Post

JFK: Coming of Age in the American Century, 1917-1956 by Fredrik Logevall is out now!

Fredrik Logevall creates a portrait of a youthful Kennedy who is curious, savvy and self-aware.
