About the Author
In 1925, Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer bought the Modern Library from Horace Liveright, and three years later they launched Random House. For more than forty years they personally guided its fortunes, creating one of the most successful publishing companies in America. Cerf died in 1971, Klopfer in 1986.
Reviews
"My lucky star is a house--and an imaginary one at that.
Rockwell Kent drew it, one day, sitting in my office,
and it was adopted forthwith as
a trade mark for our publishing firm.
We called it Random House because we said
we were going to publish anything under
the sun that came along--if we liked it well enough.
That was in 1928. We're trying to
make the star burn a little brighter each year."

--Bennett Cerf
