Overview

In a span of 16 years, Boni and Liveright not only introduced the works of some of the 20th century's most respected authors—13 of whom became Nobel Prize winners—they also changed the way books were marketed in the US. This volume documents the most successful period of this important publishing house with reproductions of book covers, advertisements and most importantly correspondence between the publishers and their famous clients, who included Theodore Dreiser, Eugene O'Neil, Ezra Pound and William Faulkner. Following his introductory chapters on the company's development, Egleston (U. of Colorado, Boulder) reviews the firm's relationships with 22 representative authors. These sections provide a close-up of publishing in the early 20th century, as well as a glimpse of some of the world's most revered authors consumed in the pedestrian business of selling their work.
