André Schiffrin was, for thirty years, the publisher of Pantheon Books, where he published some of the world's leading writers, including Noam Chomsky, Michel Foucault, Eric Hobsbawm, Art Spiegelman, Simone De Beauvoir, Studs Terkel and Marguerite Duras. In 1990 Schiffrin left Pantheon to found The New Press, and many of those writers came with him. He is the author of the acclaimed study of the book industry, The Business of Books. His intellectual memoir, A Political Education, was published last year in New York and Paris (as Allers-retours). André Schiffrin divides his time between Paris and New York.
