Poets Wear Prada, also known as PWP Books, founded in 2006 and based in Hoboken, New Jersey, is an independent, traditional house devoted to promoting emerging writers, publishing beautifully designed volumes of well-crafted poetry -- and now fiction -- you want to read and re-read by authors you'll want to follow. Founded by former Wall Street investment banker Roxanne Hoffman with her late husband, Herbert Fuerst, a retired Hollywood agent, Poets Wear Prada is now run by Roxanne Hoffman and John "Jack" Edward Cooper.
