New York Review Books (NYRB) is the publishing house of The New York Review of Books. Its imprints are New York Review Books Classics, New York Review Books Collections, and The New York Review Children's Collection.

NYRB Classics is a list of fiction and non-fiction works for all ages and from around the world. Since its first volume, Richard Hughes's High Wind in Jamaica (1999), NYRB Classics has published over 200 titles. Occasionally, it has published translations of works previously unavailable in English by writers including Euripides, Dante, Balzac and Chekhov. It also publishes fiction by more contemporary writers such as Vasily Grossman, Mavis Gallant, Upamanyu Chatterjee, George Simenon, Kenneth Fearing, J. R. Ackerley and Robert Burton. Most of the books include an introduction by a writer or literary critic.

NYRB Collections is a series of books that collect essays by frequent contributors to The New York Review of Books. With works by writers such as Larry McMurtry, Frank Rich, Mary McCarthy, Freeman Dyson and others, NYRB Collections present treatments of major intellectual, political, scientific, and artistic developments and debates.
