Roberto Calasso in conversation with Boyd Tonkin

‘All the books published by a certain publisher could be seen as links in a single chain’

In this fascinating memoir and manifesto the author and publisher Roberto Calasso meditates on the art of the book publishing. With his signature erudition and polemical flair, Calasso transcends Adelphi to look at the publishing industry as a whole, from the essential importance of graphics, jackets and cover flaps to the consequences of universal digitization. And he outlines what he describes as the ‘most hazardous and ambitious’ profile of what a publishing house can be: a book comprising many books, akin to that of other twentieth-century publishers, from Giulio Einaudi to Roger Straus, of whom the book offers brief portraits.

Roberto Calasso lives in Milan, where he is the publisher of Adelphi. He is the author of Tiepolo Pink, The Ruin of Kasch, The Marriage of Cadmo and Harmony, winner of the Prix Veillon and the Prix du Meilleur Livre Etanger, Literature and the Gods, Ka and K.

Boyd Tonkin is a writer and critic, and was Literary Editor of The Independent. He is Chair of Judges at the Man Booker International Prize 2016, he has also judged the Booker Prize, the Whitbread biography award, the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the David Cohen Prize. [book now]
