Viking Penguin is comprised of Viking Books, Penguin Books, Penguin Classics, Pamela Dorman Books, Penguin Life, and The Open Field.
Viking Books, one of the most respected imprints in trade publishing, specializes in bringing extraordinary books to the broadest possible readership. We build on a hundred-year history to publish books for the 21st century, with a focus on innovation and creativity from acquisition through publication. Our expertise is making bestsellers and award winners out of literary and book club fiction, suspense fiction, and nonfiction from academics, journalists, thought leaders, and inspiring guides to the ideas that change our culture.
Pamela Dorman Books has focused on fiction—especially well-written, accessible debut fiction—since its founding in 2008 by Pamela Dorman, Vice President and Publisher of Pamela Dorman Books/ Viking. In addition, the imprint also publishes upmarket suspense fiction and occasional nonfiction, including memoirs, psychology and personal development, inspiration and spirituality, and books geared toward women’s interests.
Guided by the principle that wellness is for everyone, Penguin Life is dedicated to publishing groundbreaking works of nonfiction that provide readers with tools, insights, and encouragement to live fuller, healthier lives—one book at time. We are also home to The Open Field, an imprint from Maria Shriver, which publishes voices from all walks of life and areas of human endeavor that seek to inform, ignite, inspire, and move humanity forward—one person at a time. From titles on health and better living to anxiety and stress management to personal transformation to reflection and motivation—we are giving you the tools you need to build your everyday, and every day after that. Our mission is simple: read well, live well.
