My goal with The Biblio File is to engage authors and others connected with 'the book' in variously entertaining, informative, stimulating, funny, intense conversation. If you'd like to contribute to that conversation, please email me at I'd love to hear from you. If you'd like to become a patron, please click here.

The Harry Ransom Center holds the Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. archive, which includes books published under the Borzoi imprint and books from Alfred A. and Blanche Knopf’s personal library. The Ransom Center’s Associate Director for Exhibitions and Fleur Cowles Executive Curator Cathy Henderson, and Associate Director and Hobby Foundation Librarian, Richard Oram, collaborated on The House of Knopf, a book that contains collected documents from the Knopf, Inc. archive and is part of the Dictionary of Literary Biography series. It goes for a paltry $547 on, instead of buying the book, I decided to travel down to Austin, Texas to interview the authors.
