nashThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to Richard Eoin Nash, who ran the acclaimed small publisher Soft Skull Press from 2001 to March of this year. Willamette Week called Soft Skull’s offerings under Nash “solidly grounded, daringly provocative food for the brain”, and Quill & Quire called the company “one of the most visible and respected alternative houses in the US [ … ] like Grove Press in the 1950s and 1960s.” Since leaving Soft Skull, Nash has worked as a consultant, helping to usher in a new era in publishing focused on creating meaningful connections between authors and readers.

The Marketplace of Ideas every Thursday at noon.
