Brooklyn publisher Archipelago Books is at the center of a literary phenomenon: Karl Ove Knausgaard - Speakeasy - WSJ →

This is an interview with Archipelago Books founder and publisher Jill Schoolman. Some of the questions are kind of weird (“Anyone named a baby after Knausgaard yet?”), and it disturbs me that the interviewer finds Archipelago’s other books “daunting,” but it’s nice to see this small Brooklyn indie getting some mainstream attention.
