About Us

At Paul Dry Books, our aim is to publish lively books "to awaken, delight, and educate"—and to spark conversation. We publish fiction, both novels and short stories, and nonfiction—biography, memoirs, history, and essays, covering subjects from Homer to Chekhov, bird watching to jazz music, New York City to shogunate Japan.

Browse our website to find excerpts, news about our authors, curriculum guides, and articles about us and our books. If you have questions or comments, please contact us. We are always searching for worthy out-of-print titles to bring back to the public. If you have a favorite out-of-print book, please let us know.

Our books can be securely ordered by credit card using this site, and are also available from your local bookseller.
