AN EXTRAORDINARY INSIDE LOOK AT THE BOOK BUSINESS FROM PUBLISHING AND BOOKSELLING PROFESSIONALS!
Among Friends: An Illustrated Oral History of American Book Publishing and Bookselling in the 20th Century is a deluxe limited edition volume that collects essays and recollections from 100 prominent figures working in publishing or bookselling during the second half of the 20th century to present a fascinating and multi-layered portrait of a business that both reflected and responded to massive societal changes.
The range of industry professionals is broad and varied, from publishing to bookselling (including Mrs. Dalloway's bookseller Hut Landon). For anyone with an interest in the recent history of the book business - told by people who helped create and define that history - this volume is for them.
Despite its $200 price and its non-returnable status, we expect this will be a collector's item - only 1500 hand-numbered copies will be available for sale. We would urge any interested parties to place an order of Among Friends sooner than later to ensure they receive a copy. We have been told by the publisher not to expect a reprint.
