About the Book:
In never-before-told tales and fond recollections of the titles that helped shape our culture, more than 100 prominent figures recall their careers from the postwar period through the independent publishing revolution of the 1960s and ’70s to the new millennium. Illustrated with original photography of vintage book jackets, archival photos and period graphics from Publishers Weekly, Among Friends reveals how the business both reflected and responded to massive societal changes. This deluxe limited edition pays homage to the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of that time. Contributors include Alberto Vitale, Jane Friedman, Daniel Halpern, Tom Borders, Clyde Anderson, Jim Chandler, David Cully, John Sargent, Betty Prashker, Dick Snyder, Bruce Harris, John Cassidy, Lloyd Kahn, Joni Evans, Nan Talese, Esther Margolis, Sally Richardson, Connie Sayre, Jean Feiwel, Chip Gibson, David Godine, Jack Romanos, Peter Kindersley, Charlie Winton, Nigel Newton, Robert Haft, Gary Hoover and Carolan Workman.
