"On the Media" on NPR had this story:

In 1951, Grove Press was a tiny, almost-defunct publisher with just three titles in its catalogue.

Rosset, who will be honored by the National Book Foundation on November 19th, spoke with us at his home in Greenwich Village.

Listen to full story here.


The Autobiography of Malcolm X was one of the books that Grove Press published. In the "On the Media" piece Rosset gives some background on this.
