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.

Closets
Designing and Organizing the Personalized Closet
By Patricia Coen
Grove Press
978-0-8021-3228-4 • $19.95 • Paperback • Dec. 1987
Interior Design
One area in the home that never seems quite spacious or organized enough is the closet. Whether large or small, closets easily turn into jumbles of clothing and miscellaneous household items. In recent years, however, designers, architects, builders, and manufacturers have focused their attention on this problem. As a result, more and more people today are discovering inventive design alternatives and innovative accessories for optimum closet organization.

Now, handsomely designed and superbly illustrated, Closets: Designing and Organizing the Personalized Closet offers frequently surprising , often elegant, and always adaptable solutions to contemporary closet design. With informative text supported by insight from top interior designers and over 100 full-color photographs, Closets looks at everything from how to fold your clothing most efficiently to how to evaluate storage space and how to ensure adequate air circulation. From the kitchen cupboard to the luxury walk-in clothes closets, here are the ultimate ideas for personalized closet design.

The first chapter, “The Designers’ View,” outlines the modern approach to customizing existing closets or developing new ones. From creating non-traditional spaces (such as free-standing storage boxes) to streamlining the wire basket approach, today’s designers speak about how they are adapting closets to suit an individual’s personality and style of living.

Chapter Two provides seven essential steps to customizing your closet, and Chapter Three provides an overview of the accessories available. Examine all of the options to discover which are best for you; measure the space carefully, figure the amount of space you need (standard clothing dimensions are provided to help you add up space requirements in different areas of your home), then draw a diagram to make sure the two are effectively reconciled by baskets, shelves, hooks, and hangers you’ve chosen.

Professionally designed closets may be more costly, but the results can be spectacular. Featuring innovative and beautiful storage ideas from leading closet designer, Maxine Ordesky, Chapter Four takes an inspiring look at some exemplary closets. Illustrating the renaissance of fine cabinetry and cupboard making, Chapter Five provides beautiful photographs of designs by Interlubke, Boffi, and Missoni, among others.

Understanding that no closet is effective unless you know how to use it, Chapter Six encourages the reader to pay attention to detail. Here are the best ways to hang all types of dresses, trousers, and jackets, stack hats, wrap silks, store furs, and fold sweaters. Rounding out this invaluable book, the last chapter takes an informative look at the unique challenges of coordinating storage space in the kid’s room, from accommodating the growing years to encouraging cleanup by cheerfully decorating with homemade accessories.

Supplemented by a complete sources section for all kinds of suppliers and services—providing closet planners with readily available phone numbers and addresses—Closets is a necessity for any person who recognizes that organization is one of the keys to better living.
