The Overlook Press is an independent general-interest publisher, founded in 1971. The publishing program consists of nearly 100 new books per year, evenly divided between hardcovers and trade paperbacks. The list is eclectic, but areas of strength include interesting fiction, history, biography, drama, and design.
The publishing formula proved reliable, and now Overlook has nearly 1000 titles in print. Our fiction includes novels by solidly commercial authors including espionage novelist Robert Littell (The Company, 90,000 sold) and international phenomenon Penny Vincenzi, whose Edwardian era family saga No Angel is widely acclaimed as stunning entertainment. We expect lightning to strike again in April 2004 with Dragon\’s Eye by Andy Oakes, a poundingly paced thriller set in modern Shanghai. In a more literary vein, there is Hash by top Swedish novelist Torgny Lindgren (unlike anything you\’ve ever read – Kirkus) and Michele Slung\’s irresistible anthology of garden writing The Garden of Reading.
