Greg's academic background is in Philosophy and English Literature, but his interests are universal. He's been in the book business for the better part of 25 years. The reason is simple. He is passionate about books. He believes in their potency. He believes in their capacity to wake us up—to new regions of knowledge, feelings we’ve never had, ways of life we would never have imagined, if a book hadn’t pointed the way.
