This is the story of the authors and staff who, driven by passion, conviction and excitement, have made Virago Press one of the most important and influential English-language publishers in the world.
Lennie Goodings has been with the iconic press founded by Carmen Callil almost since the start. She has worked with extraordinary authors: Margaret Atwood, Marilynne Robinson, Sarah Waters, Linda Grant and Maya Angelou among many others. Following the chronology of the press and the enormous breadth of the Virago titles published over these years, she segues into thoughts on editing, reading, breaking boundaries, and the Virago Modern Classics.
