Tributes: Andre Schiffrin
Thursday, December 05, 2013
Andre Schiffrin was a force of nature in the publishing world for 50 years. He championed the work of Jean-Paul Sartre, Gunter Grass, Simone de Beauvoir, and Julio Cortazar, among many others, first at Pantheon, before founding the independent New Press. He died in Paris at the age of 78. And you can hear his interview with Leonard from September 2000, when he discussed his polemical memoir, The Business of Books.
