Dear friends,

We're glad to announce that Ludmila Ulitskaya's last novel DANIEL STEIN, TRANSLATOR will soon be available in English from one of the best US independent publishers Overlook Press.

Formed in 1971 by Peter Mayer and his father, The Overlook Press (www.overlookpress.com) is a home for distinguished books that have sometimes been “overlooked” by larger houses, although the company’s name comes from Overlook Mountain in Woodstock, New York. At the time of Overlook’s founding, Mayer was head of Avon, a large New York-based paperback publisher. He later went on to head Penguin’s worldwide publishing from London. In 1997, after 19 years with the company, Mr. Mayer began his dream job, at age 61, as a full-time independent publisher. Milestone books by Overlook range from Industrial Design by Raymond Loewy and Milton Glaser’s Graphic Design to the 17th century Japanese martial arts treatise, A Book of Five Rings, which has now become a perennial business bestseller, and Charles McCarry’s legendary espionage novels. Joseph Roth’s The Radetsky March, Robert Littell’s The Company, Penny Vincenzi’s great British sagas, the fiction of Charles Portis and Paul Cartledge’s works on ancient history are further examples of Overlook’s independent spirit. In recent years, The Overlook Press has brought back to life Ardis, the spunky outlet for Russian literature, and Duckworth in England, perhaps the oldest independent publishing house in the UK.
