“World of Letters” showcases the classic books and Press events since the founding of Yale University Press in 1908. In 2008, we celebrated our centenary with the publication of Nicholas Basbanes’ A World of Letters, in which he explores the saga behind the acquisition of Eugene O’Neill’s blockbuster play, the all-time Yale bestseller Long Day’s Journey into Night; the controversy sparked in 1965 by publication of The Vinland Map; the origins of the groundbreaking Annals of Communism series, initiated in the wake of the Soviet Union’s demise; and many more highlights from Press annals. Behind these walls, the stories of books—how they were conceived, written, and made—have a most special place in our hearts, and like the gifts of reading and learning, it brings us great pleasure to share them with the wider world.
