About Soho Press
Located in the heart of downtown Manhattan and founded in 1986 by Laura and Alan Hruska and Juris Jurjevics, Soho Press is an independent publisher of literary fiction and international crime. Soho Teen, a mystery/thriller imprint for young adults, will debut in 2013. Below you can learn more about Soho’s current Publisher, Bronwen Hruska, and the rest of the stellar Soho staff.
Under the Soho Crime imprint you’ll find great literary international crime fiction featuring detectives, spies, amateur sleuths, and thieves from all over the globe. Soho Crime is renowned for both foreign crime novels in translation (like the New York Times bestselling Danish thriller, The Boy in the Suitcase, and Japan’s 2012 Oe Prize-winner The Thief) and culturally rich and atmospheric books by English-language authors set in foreign locales (like the March 2012 IndieNext selection Murder at the Lanterne Rouge, set in Paris, and 2010 LA Times Book Prize-winner The Ghosts of Belfast, set in Northern Ireland).
Soho also has a rich history of great fiction from Garth Stein, Stephen Fry, Edwidge Danticat and dozens of other amazing authors who have made Soho their home. More recently, Soho Press published Alex Shakar’s critically acclaimed Luminarium, which won the 2012 LA Times Book Prize.

Bronwen Hruska is the publisher of Soho Press. In her previous life she wrote articles about Brad Pitt (who, despite the cliché, she kind of had a crush on), the Las Vegas-ization of Macau, China, (where being 5'8" and a non-gambler makes it hard to hide), and something called Tablescapes where you match your dress to your napkins. None of the screenplays she sold were ever made into movies, so you can't watch them. But you could read her novel, Accelerated, which will be published in October, by Pegasus Books.
