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.

Among his achievements was championing Studs Terkel and shepherding his "Working." For that life- and culture- changing work alone I will be forever grateful to the great Mr. Schiffrin.

I have read over the years that it's not a good idea to let chicken
marinate in lemon for a long time as the acid breaks down the fibers of
the meat. However, you and Rozanne Gold have mentioned marinating
overnight. Please clarify this for me.

Thank you,

Linda P.
