Meet the Publishing Pros: Jonathan Galassi - Fully Registered
In this new occasional series, writers and patrons interested in the publishing world are invited to an insightful discussion with one of its stars.
Jonathan Galassi has served as publisher at Farrar, Straus & Giroux since 1986 and president since 2002. He is the author of the novel Muse, an affectionate send-up of the now-departed publishing world, as well as three collections of poetry and acclaimed translations of the Italian poets Eugenio Montale and Giacomo Leopardi. A former poetry editor of the Paris Review, he also writes for the New York Review of Books and other publications.
Raised in southeastern Massachusetts, Galassi studied poetry at Harvard University with Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and is an honorary chairman of the Academy of American Poets. In 2008 he received the Maxwell E. Perkins Award, which recognizes an editor, publisher, or agent who “has discovered, nurtured and championed writers of fiction in the U.S.”
