Let’s Hope It’s Not A Metaphor

Alfred Knopf, Jr. died Saturday at the age of 90.

I don’t think I need to list some of the authors Knopf and his parents helped to promote through their eponymous and Atheneum-based publishing houses in New York, but I will anyway:

Carl Bernstein
Willa Cather
Julia Child
Joan Didion
Jack London
Thomas Mann
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Toni Morrison
Haruki Murakami
John Updike
Edward Albee

Here’s hoping our literary community can carry on the tradition of books in print in his wake.
