Liveright Publishing

Liveright Publishing A home for outstanding works of literature that define and redefine our culture. In its modern incarnation Liveright will be a home for outstanding works that define and redefine our culture, just as do the works published by Horace Liveright so many years ago continue; works that continue to provoke interest and inspire readers around the world.
(10)

Mission: Though no original titles had been published bearing the distinctive cowled monk colophon of Liveright for many years, in 2012 W.W. Norton & Company re-launched the storied imprint, producing an inaugural catalog of publications sure to once again secure Liveright as a pre-eminent publisher of the finest literature. Maintaining its historical high standards and progressive literary sensibilities in both fiction and nonfiction, the revived Liveright imprint releases have included a trenchant political commentary by Gail Collins (As Texas Goes…), a magisterial and provocative new work by biologist Edward O. Wilson (The Social Conquest of Earth), the long-awaited George Orwell Diaries, and republications of out-of-print classics by J.G. Ballard, such as The Drowned World and Millennium People. In addition, Liveright Publishing of the twenty-first century will continue to print classics from the twentieth century catalog, including works by Faulkner, Stein, Cummings, Crane, Loos, Freud, Russell, and many more.

“[An] insightful novel . . . Hudson, an Alabama native, memorably evokes her home state, both its beauty and its warped rituals. . . . Hudson invokes the tropes of Alabama to powerful effect: the bizarre fundamentalism; the religion of football; the cultlike unification of church and state. The tropes run the risk of feeling hackneyed, but this is Southern gothic territory, after all. Hudson brings something new to that terrain: an overt depiction of queer desire, welcome because writers such as Capote’s and McCullers’ depictions of queerness were so occluded. A magical, deeply felt novel that breathes new life into an old genre.”

“Cho’s clinical prose is bolstered with figures and footnotes to illustrate how ordinary Jiyoung’s experience is.... When ‘Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982’, was published in Korea in 2016, it was received as a cultural call to arms.... Like Bong Joon Ho’s Academy Award-winning film ‘Parasite’, which unleashed a debate about class disparities in South Korea, Cho’s novel was treated as a social treatise as much as a work of art.... The new, often subversive novels by Korean women, which have intersected with the rise of the #MeToo movement, are driving discussions beyond the literary world.”

In what may go down as the most weather-apropos #PubDay in Liveright history, today marks the release of Eric Jay Dolin's "A Furious Sky: The Five-Hundred Year History of America's Hurricanes". Author @EricJayD presents a vivid account of the nation’s deadliest storms, from Christopher Columbus’ voyages to Hurricane Maria and what climate change holds for our future. Today for @nytimesbooks, Elizabeth Kolbert calls A FURIOUS SKY "A lively chronicle... most compelling in its often harrowing details... filled with haunting personal stories." The book “deftly weaves together tales of tragedy, heroism, and scientific progress”, writes Library Journal, and Booklist calls it “a remarkably human story of people struggling with nature at its fiercest.” A FURIOUS SKY is available now at your favorite bookstore.

“Nicole Dennis-Benn’s sophomore novel, Patsy, methodically and unapologetically engages with choices women do and should be allowed to make, and as with her last novel, ‘Here Comes the Sun’, does so with nuance and grace.... Patsy is a deeply queer, sensitive and vividly written novel about a woman’s right to want and a child’s right to carve her own path.” - Ilana Masad (@ilanaslightlyignorant), Washington Post (Photo: @readwithneleh)

At NPR Morning Edition, Fessler discusses the history of Louisiana's National Leprosarium, and National Leprosarium: "One of the things that made Carville possible was the fact that people didn't have a lot of information about the disease. So that allowed people to spread disinformation to implement policies... [from those] worried about immigrants coming in.... Sometimes it leads to very bad public policy."

Available Now • Marisel Vera emerges as a major voice of contemporary fiction with "The Taste of Sugar", a heart-wrenching novel set in Puerto Rico on the eve of the Spanish-American War.

“Subtle yet arresting, ‘The Taste of Sugar’, is a gorgeous feat of storytelling. Marisel Vera melds meticulous research with deep compassion and pure talent to fashion a novel that excavates the pain of the history while drawing hope from the buried stories of our nation. This is historical fiction as its best, using the moral dilemmas of the past to decipher our present conflicts in order to light our way toward a more just future.”
- Tayari Jones, author of “An American Marriage”

“A majestic work with the grand sweep of history and the intimacy of a compelling dream. Marisel Vera has written a compassionate, unforgettable, richly detailed novel about colonialism in all its guises, offering us little-known stories from the past that are essential to understanding the present.”
- Cristina Garcia, author of “Dreaming in Cuban”

“In ‘The Taste of Sugar’, Vera adds an important contribution to Puerto Rican literature by chronicling the U.S. invasion of Puerto Rico, the San Ciriaco hurricane, and the mass migration to Hawaii. Throughout, Vera captures the 'trabajo y tristeza' of the Puerto Rican people. Brava to Marisel Vera for telling our stories!”
- Ivelisse Rodriguez, author of “Love War Stories”

“In 1919, a woman was found dead in a park in a small town in Vermont... The investigation and trial that followed became rich fodder for the newspapers. But for the historian Jill Lepore, the body is also the first clue in a much bigger mystery: Who killed truth?” That’s @nytimes’ Jennifer Schuessler on ‘The Last Archive’. Liveright author Jill Lepore’s new podcast that began its 10-part first season this week. With the verve of a crime noir detective, Lepore reels in listeners with “a decade-by-decade tour of the rise and fall of the fact across the past century, looking at how we know what we know — and how it can seem lately, as she puts it, ‘as if we don’t know anything at all.” “There’s an unexpectedly timely episode on the polio epidemic the 1950s,” writes Schuessler, “and the eerily familiar political debates it spawned. And the final episode takes the story to our own troubled era of algorithms and Big Data, (the subject, it so happens, of her next book, “If Then: How the Simulmatics Corporation Invented the Future,” out in September - link in bio).” As for the death of truth? “I do offer an answer,” says Lepore. “I eliminate a lot of prime suspects. I indict some co-conspirators.” (📷: Kayana Syzmczak for The New York Times)

“[Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982] laid bare my own Korean childhood ― and, let’s face it, my Western adulthood too ― forcing me to confront traumatic experiences that I’d tried to chalk up as nothing out of the ordinary. But then, my experiences are ordinary, as ordinary as the everyday horrors suffered by the book’s protagonist, Jiyoung. This novel is about the banality of the evil that is systemic misogyny. . . . Jiyoung, like Gregor Samsa, feels so overwhelmed by social expectations that there is no room for her in her own body; her only option is to become something ― or someone ― else.” – Euny Hong, New York Times Book Review (📷: @lifelivedbooked)

Available June 16th • Marisel Vera emerges as a major voice of contemporary fiction with a heart-wrenching novel set in Puerto Rico on the eve of the Spanish-American War.

It is 1898, and groups of starving Puerto Ricans, los hambrientos, roam the parched countryside and dusty towns begging for food. Under the yoke of Spanish oppression, the Caribbean island is forced to prepare to wage war with the United States. Up in the mountainous coffee region of Utuado, Vicente Vega and Valentina Sanchez labor to keep their small farm from the creditors. When the Spanish-American War and the great San Ciriaco Hurricane of 1899 bring devastating upheaval, the young couple is lured, along with thousands of other puertorriquenos, to the sugar plantations of Hawaii―another US territory―where they are confronted by the hollowness of America’s promises of prosperity. Writing in the tradition of great Latin American storytelling, Marisel Vera’s "The Taste of Sugar" is an unforgettable novel of love and endurance, and a timeless portrait of the reasons we leave home.
