Biography

Robert Giroux was one of Merton's friends from his Columbia University days. While Giroux was with Harcourt, Brace publishers, he reviewed and rejected some of Merton's early novels. After seeing The Seven Storey Mountain, he decided to take a chance on this book which turned out to be a surprise best seller and launched Merton's career as a writer. In 1955, he joined Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, which became Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1964. He later took the role as a trustee for Merton's literary estate.
