The Graywolf Silver Anthology: A Rare Breed of Publisher for 25 Years written by Graywolf Press

 

The Graywolf Silver Anthology: A Rare Breed of Publisher for 25 Years written by Graywolf Press

Synopsis:

This anthology, an eclectic and entertaining mix of poetry and prose, showcases some of the extraordinary writers who have helped shape a literary quarter-century. Their work provides clear evidence of the critical role Graywolf and other independent presses play in the otherwise increasingly homogenous publishing universe - a realization made all the more remarkable when contrasted against the simple charm of Graywolf's earliest days as a letterpress publisher, as described in an introductory historical essay by founder Scott Walker.

Library Journal

It all began as a small letterpress shop in St. Paul, that printed a literary magazine and, in the fall of 1974, one book of poetry. Graywolf Press has since evolved into one of the leading independent literary publishers. Scott Walker, who founded the press with Kathleen Foster, credits Graywolf's success to the editors' pride in choosing creative contemporary writing while running an efficient business. This anthology celebrates their 25 years in publishing, combining a versatile selection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that highlights the many fine writers (Charles Baxter, Jan Zita Grover, William Kittredge) who have contributed to Graywolf's success over the years. As the reader browses through the collection, focusing on some of the carefully chosen selections, the text reverberates with the importance of literature, of writing, and of reading. Included at the end of the book is a comprehensive list of the books published by Graywolf. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Cynde Bloom Lahey, New Canaan Lib., CT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
