Farrar, Straus and Giroux (FSG) is an American book publishing company, founded in 1946 by Roger W. Straus, Jr. and John C. Farrar. Known primarily as Farrar, Straus in its first decade of existence, the company was renamed several times, including Farrar, Straus and Young and Farrar, Straus and Cudahy before gaining its current name in 1964, after hiring Robert Giroux from rival Harcourt, Brace. Giroux brought with him such important writers as T. S. Eliot and Flannery O'Connor. Straus continued to run the company for twenty years after his partner Farrar died, until 1993 when he sold a majority interest of the company to the privately owned German publishing conglomerate Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group.
Jonathan Galassi is president and publisher. Andrew Mandel joined in 2004 as deputy publisher. Eric Chinski is editor-in-chief. In 2008, Mitzi Angel came from Fourth Estate in the UK to be publisher of the Faber and Faber Inc. imprint. Other notable editors include Courtney Hodell, Hill & Wang publisher Thomas LeBien, Paul Elie, Sean McDonald, and Sarah Crichton (publisher of her own eponymous imprint).
