New Vessel Press is an independent publishing house specializing in the translation of foreign literature and narrative nonfiction into English.[2] New Vessel Press books have been widely reviewed in publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and O, The Oprah Magazine. They have also garnered numerous awards, including Best Books of 2013 in World Literature Today,[3] The New Republic,[4] Library Journal[5] and Tweed's Magazine. In addition, The Missing Year of Juan Salvatierra was longlisted for the Best Translated Book Award.[6]



New Vessel Press was co-founded by writer/translator Ross Ufberg and author/journalist Michael Z. Wise[7] in 2012[8] with the intention of bringing foreign literature to English-speaking audiences. New Vessel Press print books are distributed to bookstores throughout the United States and Canada by Consortium Book Sales & Distribution. All NVP titles are also available as ebooks.[9] "Ross and Michael have really spun gold out of nothing; they've really made an instant classic out of New Vessel," John Oakes, director of the New School Publishing Institute and co-founder of OR Books, told Crain's New York Business.[10] in May 2017.


Book covers for New Vessel Press translations have been created by graphic artist Liana Finck as well Beth Steidle.[11] <ref name="bethsteidle"><ref>
