Milestone for Counterpoint Press

"Quality, thoughtful publishing"

US independent literary publisher Counterpoint Press last year celebrated its 20th anniversary and this was noted in November 2015 by an interesting article in Publishers Weekly that gave some background to the history of the various imprints associated with Counterpoint LLC: Soft Skull, Counterpoint, Shoemaker & Hoard.

Counterpoint has published several of Janet Frame's posthumous and backlist titles. One of these, Between My Father and the King, was the book of theirs mentioned by Publishers Weekly that earned a front page spot in the New York Times Book Review:

"Reviews and critical success have also increased. Since the fall of 2013, the press has had 18 reviews in the New York Times Book Review, with one title making the cover."

In mid-2016 Counterpoint will release the first volume of Janet Frame's letters to her friend Bill Brown, Jay to Bee, and a fresh American edition of her autobiography An Angel at My Table is being prepared for publication later in the year.

"They publish books that matter."
