Boris Kachka - Hothouse

Roger Straus, editor and publisher at FSG, was loved, loathed, feared, and admired, and the publishing house with which he came of age was (and still is) perhaps the mightiest producer of quality literature in America. Hothouse perfectly captures the often uneasy alliance of commerce and culture. Through anecdote and first hand reminiscences, Kachka weaves a compelling - and sometimes hilarious - history of 20th century American publishing, involving the geniuses, egotists, and neurotics, namely most of the important voices of writing and publishing in a golden era of American literature.
