Pamela Dorman Books
Pamela Dorman Books launched its first hardcover list in January 2010. The imprint focuses on the kind of books Dorman has published throughout her career: fiction, especially debut fiction that is both well-written and accessible, character-driven novels propelled by strong storytelling and rich emotional cores. These are books that are aimed at an upmarket popular audience, both literate and commercial, the kinds of novels that reading groups adopt, that we hope readers treasure, and that will have long lives in trade paperback ahead of them. We will also publish the occasional non-fiction title, especially books that have a distinctive voice and compelling narrative drive, including memoirs and books geared towards women’s interests.
Recent titles include New York Times bestselling Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman; Premio Strega winner Paolo Giordano’s critically-acclaimed international sensation, The Solitude of Prime Numbers; major bestselling author Luanne Rice’s 29th novel, The Silver Boat; and the New York Times bestseller 22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson, a heartrending story of love and survival about WWII survivors trying to become a family again after a harrowing six-year separation.
Summer 2011 titles include The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes, winner of the Romance Novelists’ Association’s “Romantic Novel of the Year Award,” a sophisticated double love story spanning 40 years, and Alice Bliss by award-winning playwright Laura Harrington, about a teenage girl coming of age just as her beloved father goes off to war.
In her more than twenty years at Viking Penguin, Pamela Dorman acquired and edited the multi-million copy #1 bestsellers The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards, Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding and The Deep End Of The Ocean by Jacquelyn Mitchard, which was the first selection of the Oprah Book Club, along with many other fiction and non-fiction bestsellers. In 2006, she became Vice-President, Editorial Director of Voice, a new imprint for women at Hyperion, where she acquired and edited the fiction bestsellers The Physick Book Of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe and The Monsters Of Templeton by Lauren Groff, and edited Candace Bushnell's One Fifth Avenue, and acquired and edited the bestselling memoirs The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan, and Perfection by Julie Metz. She has also edited such bestselling authors as Stephen King and Jeffery Deaver, and has worked with such prominent figures as Bill Gates (The Road Ahead), Marcia Clark (Without a Doubt), Karen Hughes (Ten Minutes from Normal), and NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell (Talking Back) on their bestselling memoirs. She rejoined the Penguin Group in 2008 to found her eponymous imprint, Pamela Dorman Books. She began her publishing career at St. Martin's Press. Dorman is a summa cum laude graduate of Wesleyan University and lives with her husband and twelve-year-old twins in New Rochelle, NY.
