Founded in 1917, Atlantic Monthly Press is one of two hardcover imprints of Grove Atlantic. As a book publishing imprint borne out of the venerable Atlantic Monthly magazine, AMP won numerous Pulitzer Prizes and National Book Awards and included the bestselling titles Mutiny on the Bounty; Goodbye, Mr. Chips; Ship of Fools; Fire in the Lake; The Soul of a New Machine; and Blue Highways. In 1986, the press was separated from the magazine by new owners and established as a fully independent publishing house. Under this new leadership in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the press published such authors as Raymond Carver, Ron Chernow (National Book Award 1990), J. P. Donleavy, Richard Ford, Francisco Goldman, Jay McInerney, P. J. O’Rourke, Rian Malan, Jeanette Winterson, Tobias Wolff, Sherman Alexie, Mark Bowden, and Charles Frazier.
