    One thought on “Rosset: My Life in Publishing and How I Fought Censorship”

    1. A decent enough memoir by one of the great publishers in English. Where would I be without Grove Press? I do have a thing about books on publishing. There is not one book that I can walk by that is not about publishing or being a publisher. I think I read them all. Although Barney Rosset is my favorite among the publishers, this is only ( very) good in parts. The chapter on Samuel Beckett is great, and his relationship with Olympia's equally great publisher, Maurice Girodias, is also fascinating [...]

    2. I was quite entertained by this book, but I wish it had been better constructed. Rosset died in 2012, and this book is constructed from an unfinished autobiography. In the early chapters, it feels like a standard biography--here's what happened, here's who I knew and who I was in love with, etc. But once he starts Grove Press, each chapter is about a specific Grove author or incident (particularly his censorship battles over Lady Chatterley's Lover and Tropic of Cancer). We read quite a lot abou [...]

    3. Rating: 5* of five#ReadingIsResistance to the sense of powerlessness to the bullying, harassing, overbearing tinpot tyrants of all history. My review of BarneyRosset's shining example of always resisting the coercions of power, the diktats of faceless bureaucrats, the dumbing down of the culture is more neede now than ever. He never stopped until he stopped forever. Resist.
