Grove Press is a hardcover and paperback imprint of Grove Atlantic, Inc. Grove Press was founded on Grove Street in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1947. But its true beginning came in 1951 when twenty-eight-year-old Barney Rossett, Jr. bought the company and turned it into one of the most influential publishers of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. From the outset, Rossett took chances: Grove published many of the Beats including William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg. In addition, Grove Press became the preeminent publisher of twentieth-century drama in America, publishing the work of Samuel Beckett (Nobel Prize for Literature 1969), Bertold Brecht, Eugene Ionesco, David Mamet (Pulitzer Prize for Drama 1984), Harold Pinter (Nobel Prize for Literature 2005), Tom Stoppard, and many more. The press also introduced to American audiences the work of international authors such as Jorge Luis Borges, Mikhail Bulgakov, Marguerite Duras, Jean Genet, Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz (Nobel Prize for Literature 1990), Kenzaburo Oe (Nobel Prize for Literature 1994), Elfriede Jelinek (Nobel Prize for Literature 2004), Alain Robbe-Grillet, and Juan Rulfo. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Barney Rossett challenged the obscenity laws by publishing D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover and then Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer. His landmark court victories changed the American cultural landscape. Grove Press went on to publish literary erotic classics like The Story of O and ground-breaking gay fiction like John Rechy’s City of Night, as well as the works of the Marquis de Sade. On the political front, Grove Press published classics that include Franz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and Che Guevara’s The Bolivian Diary, among many other titles. In 1986, Barney Rosset sold the company and the press became part of Grove Weidenfeld. In 1993 that company was merged with Atlantic Monthly Press to form Grove Atlantic, Inc.

Since 1993, Grove Press has been both a hardcover and paperback imprint of Grove Atlantic publishing fiction, drama, poetry, literature in translation, and general nonfiction. Authors and titles include Jon Lee Anderson’s Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life, Robert Olen Butler’s A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain (Pulitzer Prize for Literature 1993), Kiran Desai’s Inheritance of Loss (Man Booker Prize 2006), Richard Flanagan’s Gould’s Book of Fish (Commonwealth Prize 2002), Ismail Kadare’s The Siege, Jerzy Kosinski’s Steps (National Book Award 1969), Jacqueline Susann’s Valley of the Dolls, Nick McDonell’s Twelve, Catherine Millet’s The Sexual Life of Catherine M., Pascal Mercier’s Night Train to Lisbon, Kay Ryan (Poet Laureate of the United States 2008/9) as well as Antonio Lobo Antunes, Will Self, Barry Hannah, Terry Southern, and many others.

By This Author

How I Became Hettie Jones
Hettie Jones is a poet and prose writer, author of How I Became Hettie Jones, a memoir of the "beat scene" of the fifties and sixties, published in 1990 (hardcover, Dutton) and 1991 (paper, Penguin) and currently available in a new paperback edition from Grove Press. Jones's short prose has been published in journals such as The Village Voice and Ploughshares, and she has also written numerous books for children and young adults, including an ALA Notable, The Trees Stand Shining, published in 1971 and reissued in 1993, and Big Star Fallin' Mama (Five Women In Black Music), selected in 1974 by the New York Public Library as one of the twenty best new books for young adults. Reissued in 1995 in a revised hardcover edition, it was listed by the Library as recommended teen age reading and included on Bank Street's list of Childrens Books of the Year, and is currently out in a Puffin paperback.

In 1998 Jones's poetry collection, Drive, was issued by Hanging Loose Press. Hailed as the work of a "potent and fearless poet" (Booklist), with "a good mind and sound ideas" (Independent Publisher) and "the gift to paint with vivid words and to cloak her wit with images that linger in the mind long after the reading" (Midwest Book Review), Drive won the Poetry Society of America's 1999 Norma Farber First Book Award.

The author of two previous chapbooks, Having Been Her and For Four Hetties, Jones has been reading her poetry and short stories for many years at various venues from cafes to colleges. She is a longtime editor for many of the major publishing houses, and has taught writing at NYU, Hunter College, Mercy College, the State University of New York at Purchase, Parsons School of Design, the 92nd Street Y, The New School, Penn State University, the University of Wyoming, and Lang College of New School University. Jones is the current Chair of the PEN Prison Writing Committee, and since 1989 has run a writing workshop at the New York State Correctional Facility for Women at Bedford Hills, from which she has published a nationally distributed collection, Aliens At The Border. From 1994-1996 she was a member of the Literature Panel of the New York State Council on the Arts. She is currently editorial consultant to the Studio Museum in Harlem and the College and Community Fellowship, a new organization in support of ex-offenders.

In 1958, Hettie (nee Cohen) married the as-yet-unpublished poet LeRoi Jones (now Amiri Baraka). One of the few visible interracial couples at that time, they had two children, co-edited Yugen, an influential literary magazine, and were at the "hot center" of the downtown bohemian New York literary, jazz, and art worlds. It is this story of their life together, and their acquaintance with other outstanding figures of that era, that is told in her memoir, How I Became Hettie Jones. The Kirkus Review called the book "a lively, candid account" and "a splendid job" that is "always insightful and frequently amusing." Russell Banks praised "the clarity of her writing"; Gloria Naylor said that the book "becomes every woman's story in the search for a center and a love of self"; Jamaica Kincaid called it a book "every American ought to read; and Lawrence Ferlinghetti said: "A feminist scrutiny such as this is just what those lost decades needed, as the Beats themselves needed it." The New York Times recommended the book on its summer reading list for 1990, its Christmas 1990 list of the 200 Notable Books of the year, and its "New and Noteworthy" paperback list in 1991.

The mother of two grown daughters, Hettie Jones lives in Manhattan's East Village, where she can be seen on her bicycle rain or shine. In Care of Worth Auto Parts, her story collection, is almost complete, and her second book of poems, All Told, is forthcoming from Hanging Loose Press in 2002.
