Pronunciation[edit]

It would be nice if someone included the pronunciation!

Importance of the firm[edit]

Shouldn't the first sentence of the lede mention what the firm is known for (its history of publishing famous authors)? Jsolinsky (talk) 17:35, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

The first sentence should explain what Farrar, Straus and Giroux is, i.e. an American publisher. Later in the lede it mentions their famous authors, but that claim is currently tagged as lacking third-party references, so it may be removed. If you can find a good reference or a particularly apposite quote describing their reputation and their authors' fame, by all means include it in the lede (as long as the reference/quotation isn't from the company or associated parties). --Colapeninsula (talk) 13:02, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Lists[edit]

I will say it again: lists of authors in a publisher article should ONLY be those authors exclusively published by them, otherwise, the proper list is of individual books. if John Author has 10 books from FSG, and 2 from Scribners, his name shouldnt be listed with either publisher, but his books should be listed. get it?(mercurywoodrose)99.23.83.234 (talk) 16:57, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

North Point[edit]

Doesn't North Point Press merit its own page, given that the company existed for a number of years and established its own reputation before becoming subsumed into FSG? 850 C (talk) 21:43, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
