Book editors around the world face the following questions: Are you a Maxwell Perkins or a Gordon Lish? Will you guide your authors toward a beautiful collaboration, or will you end up slashing and rewriting their work? The folks at Graywolf Press in Minneapolis opt for the former. Graywolf works with writers who have been nominated for and won countless awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for poetry. But for the dedicated team of editors at Graywolf, it's not about the accolades, it's about the art. Whether it's Eula Biss's haunting On Immunity: An Inoculation or James Franco's first book of poems, Graywolf pushes writers toward brilliance through the careful cultivation of talent. This indie press might not have the big budget of those publishers in New York, but this lone wolf is thriving here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
