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.

Warren Leight
By This Author

Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine

Side Man
Warren Leight's play, Side Man, won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Play. Side Man also won the 1998 Oppenheimer Award, the George & Elisabeth Marton Playwriting Award and was named a finalist for the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Following its 18-month run on Broadway, Side Man was presented at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The play has also been produced at the Guthrie, the Steppenwolf, the Galway Arts Festival, and London's Apollo Theatre on the West End. The Steppenwolf production of Side Man, directed by Anna Shapiro, was a featured event at the Melbourne International Festival in October 2001.

Glimmer, Glimmer, and Shine, was first presented at the Williamstown Theatre Festival (as Glimmer Brothers) in July 1999 and received a second production at the Penguin Repertory Company in November 1999. In the fall of 2000 it was produced in Cincinnati by the Ensemble Theatre, where it received an American Theater Critics Association Nomination for Best New

Play. In January 2001, Evan Yionoulis directed a Los Angeles production of Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine at the Mark Taper Forum. This production opened off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club in May 2001.

Warren's other plays include Stray Cats, a collection of monologues produced by All Seasons Theatre Group, and Five Bedrooms (formerly titled The Loop). The Loop was produced at the Harold Clurman Theatre and starred Calista Flockhart, Austin Pendleton, and Felicity Huffman. Warren also wrote the book to the musical Mayor, for which he received a Drama Desk Nomination (published by Samuel French); and co-wrote the book and lyrics to the High Heeled Women Cabaret Act, which won an Outer Circle Critics Award. Fame Takes A Holiday, co-written by Warren and based on the story of the High Heeled Women, opened at La Mama ETC in the fall of 2000. Warren's one-acts have been performed at the EST Marathon, the Chicago Humanities Festival, the Atlantic Theatre Company, Naked Angels (member), Circle Rep, Alice's Fourth Floor, and many other theaters.

Warren's film work includes The Night We Never Met, starring Matthew Broderick and Annabella Sciorra, which Warren wrote and directed. He also wrote Me and Him, a romantic comedy starring Griffin Dunne, directed by Doris Dorrie. He co-wrote Before The Nickelodeon, a documentary about early American cinema that premiered at the New York Film Festival.

Warren's one-act, The Final Interrogation of Ceaucesu's Dog, was published in both the EST Marathon 2000 collection (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) and in Bomb magazine. His I Hate New York Guidebook (Dell) has also been published in England (Hodder and Stoughton) and Japan. From Here To Maternity, another humor book, was adapted into an HBO special.

Mr. Leight is the Vice-President of the Writers' Guild of America East Council, and a member of the Dramatists' Guild Council.
