Our Mission

Fig Tree Books publishes novels and nonfiction (including memoirs) that chronicle and enlighten the beautiful and sometimes challenging mosaic of the American Jewish Experience in three ways, by:

  • Selecting new voices;
  • Working with previously published authors;
  • Re-publishing important works that have gone out of print.

We do not publish poetry, novellas, short stories, chap books, young adult, or children’s books.

PleaseĀ contact us for manuscript submissions or for any other reason.
