LARB Books is the publishing wing of the Los Angeles Review of Books, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and disseminating rigorous, incisive, and engaging writing on every aspect of literature, culture, and the arts. The addition of this publishing project extends LARB’s mission of bringing the best that is thought and written to readers around the world.

Dedicated to a curious and global readership, LARB Books combines the precision of academic inquiry with the spirit of Los Angeles’s vibrant literary lineage. We publish three series: Classics, revivals of exemplary Southern California literature; Provocations, philosophical approaches to the contemporary intellectual condition; and True Stories, the first of its kind, a series of novella-length creative nonfiction. We also house two imprints, Les Figues Press and Outcaste Press.
