Hothouse: The Art of Survival and the Survival of Art at America´s Most Celebrated Publishing House, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux

Hothouse : Farrar, Straus and Giroux is arguably the most influential publishing house of the modern era. Home to an unrivaled twenty-five Nobel Prize winners and generation-defining authors like T. S. Eliot, Flannery O´Connor, Susan Sontag, Tom Wolfe, Joan Didion, Philip Roth, and Jonathan Franzen, it´s a cultural institution whose importance approaches that of "The New Yorker" or "The New York Times." But FSG is no ivory tower - the owner´s wife called the office a "sexual sewer" - and its untold story is as tumultuous and engrossing as many of the great novels it has published. Vast but detailed, full of both fresh gossip and keen insight into how the literary world works, Hothouse is the product of five years of research and nearly two hundred interviews by a veteran New York magazine writer. It tells an essential story for the first time, providing a delicious inside perspective on the rich pageant of postwar cultural life and illuminating the vital intellectual center of the American Century.
