One of our favorite publishers is New Directions, which carries many of Henry’s titles. James Laughlin founded the company (when he was twenty-two!)
His inaugural publication, in 1936, was an anthology featuring the work of Wallace Stevens, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, Marianne Moore, William Carlos Williams, and Henry Miller.
Fast forward to today and this excellent New Yorker piece looking at how this small publisher is surviving — no, THRIVING! — both commercially *and* artistically is the age of Amazon!! It’s an inspiring read!
