Notably: This may not matter much to a disturbingly high percentage of the planetary population, but today is the birthday anniversary of Alrfed A. Knopf (1892), who published some of the greatest American writers of the century, and many of the world’s greatest writer, as Knopf, still the nobility of the book trade, continues to do to this day: Cormac McCarthy, Robert A. Caro, Richard Ford, Gordon S. Wood, John Updike, Anne Tyler, Toni Morrison, Peter Taylor, John Cheever, Richard Hofstadter, Wallace Stevens, John Hersey, Willa Cather, Joan Didion, Philip Levine, Barbara W. Tuchman, Kazuo Ishiguro, Alice Munro, Doris Lessing, Orhan Pamuk, V.S. Naipaul, Günter Grass, Nadine Gordimer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Andre Gide, Thomas Mann, and that little Nazi sympathizer Knut Hamsun, to name a few. Imagine being Alfred Knopf. “When all scores are settled, it will be written that Alfred Knopf was the greatest publisher this country ever had,” Hersey said. He died in 1984.

“Do not praise your own faith so exclusively that you disbelieve all the rest. If you do this, you will fail to recognize the real truth of the matter. God, the omnipresent and omnipotent, cannot be confined to any one creed, for he says, ‘Wheresoever ye turn, there is the face of Allah.’ (Quran 2:115). Everybody praises what he believes; his god is his own creature and in praising it he praises himself. Consequently, he blames the beliefs of others, which he would not do if he were just, but his dislike is based on ignorance.”
–Ibn al-Arabi (1165-1240), quoted by Karen Armstrong in her By the Book interview. The New York Times, September 11, 2022.
