In this memoir, legendary publisher George Braziller captures his life in a collection of candid, often humorous vignettes.  

In his memoir, Encounters, completed at age 99, George Braziller, the groundbreaking independent publisher, describes in vivid detail going to work at age 16 in Depression-Era Brooklyn, his political awakening with the Spanish Civil War, his service in World War II, and his bold adventures in publishing. He recounts his start as a shipping clerk, his founding of book clubs and then his time at the helm of his publishing house, which for 60 years has brought influential books on art, architecture, poetry, fiction and non-fiction to many readers. Encounters offers glimpses behind the scenes with artists and authors, including Picasso, Orhan Pamuk, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe.   29 Color Illustrations, 20 B&W Photographs
