Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Turtle Point Press is committed to combining superior literature with elegant and original book design. Our mission is to delight readers with outstanding work by writers from around the globe, publishing books that will stand the test of time. Given the caliber of our authors and the nature of our publishing program, we are a small press that reads large. In terms of literary tastes, Turtle Point Press leans toward a sophisticated and iconoclastic mix of authors, be they eccentric aesthetes like Britain’s Lord Berners; avant-garde stylists like Julien Gracq (who refused the Prix Goncourt); or bold and inspiring contemporary voices like Diane Glancy, Michael Carroll, Katharine Coles, Roger Rosenblatt, Eduardo Sanchez Rugeles, Margo Tamez, and Grace Schulman.
