NY Times obituary for André Schiffrin

André Schiffrin, Publishing Force and a Founder of New Press, Is Dead at 78 (New York Times obituary).

I will take this as yet another occasion to recommend his very good book on the publishing industry, which he wrote in the 90s in part as a memoir, The Business of Books. He was an influence on more than just one generation of people in the book world.
