Summary
Blanche Knopf began her publishing career when she cofounded Alfred A. Knopf with her husband in a thirty-by-ten foot space a hundred years ago. A fearless and fashionable woman who had her finger on the pulse of a rapidly changing culture, she went from being a bookish child on the Upper West Side to being a driving force behind the increasingly celebrated firm, and one of the most influential literary figures of her time. In The Lady with the Borzoi, Laura Claridge looks back at the firm's beginnings and at the dynamic woman who helped shape American letters in the twentieth century
Summary
Traces the literary influences of the co-founder of the Alfred A. Knopf publishing company, describing her unsung but pivotal contributions to the establishments of classical, international, and noir fiction in twentieth-century America
