Barnet Lee "Barney" Rosset, Jr. (May 28, 1922 – February 21, 2012) was the former owner of the publishing house Grove Press, and publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the magazine Evergreen Review. He led a successful legal battle to publish the uncensored version of D. H. Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, and later was the American publisher of Henry Miller's controversial novel Tropic of Cancer. The right to publish and distribute Miller's novel in the United States was affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1964, in a landmark ruling for free speech and the First Amendment.

1One funny thing was meeting [Samuel] Beckett and Henry Miller together. They didn't want to have the meeting because both had a feeling of really hating each other. But they actually got along very well. And both of them came to me separately afterwards and said, you know, he's a lot better than I thought He's mellowed.
2Painters are more gregarious than writers. Writers go and hide.
3I have only one superstition, and that's the number 33. 'Waiting for Godot' was number 33. One of my sons is named Beckett. There are many authors that I loved dearly, but if I have to single out one it's easy.
1Owner of avant-garde New York book publisher Grove Press from 1951 to 1985.
