From the Publisher
Founded in 1986 by Juris Jurjevics and located in the heart of New York City’s Soho neighborhood, Soho Press has grown into one of the most well-respected independent publishing houses today. With a focus on discovering new, diverse voices in literary fiction, Soho Press sets itself apart by taking chances on unconventional, experimental narratives and fresh debut authors.
While literary fiction remains the mainstay of Soho Press, the publisher has expanded into other genres such as mysteries, thrillers, and young adult fiction. No matter the style or form, Soho Press prioritizes dynamic storytelling and lyrical prose. They are always on the lookout for projects with a cinematic appeal.
Soho Press has introduced American readers to authors like Julián Herbert, Laura van den Berg, Harry Parker, and Rémy Ngamije. Many works first published by Soho Press have gone on to become national bestsellers and award winners. Their titles have been finalists for the PEN/Faulkner Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
With an intimate team of editors and publicists, Soho Press provides individual attention to each author they publish while maintaining a boutique, independent spirit. Their office culture fosters creativity and passion for the written word.
In 2010, Soho Press was acquired by Soho Crime, joining two influential brands under the umbrella of the Soho Publishing Group. This expanded their scope in the mystery genre, while still devoting resources to literary fiction. The unified company continues to value editorial independence and discovering authors who take artistic risks.
