Farrar, Straus and Giroux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (350 words)
Known primarily as Farrar, Straus in its first decade of existance, the company was renamed when it hired Robert Giroux from rival Harcourt, Brace, who brought with him such prolific writers as T.S. Eliot and Flannery O'Connor.
Straus continued to run the company for twenty years after his partner Farrar passed away until 1994, when he retired and sold a majority interest of the company to the privately owned German publishing conglomerate Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group.
Nevertheless, FSG is considered one of the last of the old-fashioned literary publishers and is widely celebrated for its renowned lines of literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, poetry, and children's literature.
