From The Company

Via the company website:

"While Grove Press was founded on Grove Street in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1947, its true beginning started in 1951 when risk taker, Barney Rosset Jr., purchased it and turned it into one of the most influential publishers of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Under Rosset’s guidance, Grove Press published many of the Beats, including William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg. Quickly it became the preeminent publisher of twentieth-century drama in America, publishing authors such as Samuel, Bertolt Brecht, Eugène Ionesco, David Mamet, Harold Pinter, and Tom Stoppard. Grove also introduced American audiences to some of the most noteworthy international authors of the time.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Rosset challenged the obscenity laws by publishing D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer. His landmark court victories changed the American cultural landscape, and Grove Press went on to publish many literary erotic classics and groundbreaking gay fiction. On the political front, Grove Press published Frantz 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, Grove Press became part of Grove Weidenfeld who later merged with Atlantic Monthly Press to form Grove Atlantic. 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."
