Grove Atlantic, Inc. is an American independent publisher, based in New York City. Formerly styled "Grove/Atlantic, Inc.", it was created in 1993 by the merger of Grove Press and Atlantic Monthly Press. As of 2018 Grove Atlantic calls itself "An Independent Literary Publisher Since 1917".[1] That refers to the official date Atlantic Monthly Press was established by the Boston magazine The Atlantic Monthly.

History and operations[edit]

The company's imprints Grove Press, Atlantic Monthly Press, The Mysterious Press, and Black Cat (as of October 2018)[1] publish literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama and translations. Former imprints include Canongate U.S. and Open City.[2]

In 1990 the imprint Atlantic Monthly Press was publishing 40 new hardcover titles a year including both fiction and non-fiction.[3]

The company's president and publisher is Morgan Entrekin.[4] In 2015, Entrekin working with other publishers, booksellers, and literati introduced Literary Hub, an online website for the literary world.[5]

The company's imprints published the books by the 2006 and 2007 recipients of the Man Booker Prize: The Inheritance of Loss (Hamish Hamilton / Atlantic Monthly Press) by Kiran Desai; and The Gathering (Jonathan Cape / Black Cat) by Anne Enright, respectively.[6]

Joan Bingham was the executive editor of Grove Atlantic for nearly 30 years.[7]
