Vierzig Autoren stellen eine der spannendsten deutschen Verlagsgeschichten des 20.

Nach der Bücherverbrennung von 1933 gingen wichtige Lektoren ins Exil, Kiepenheuer versuchte sich im Land zu behaupten.
Die Teilung Deutschlands nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg spaltete auch den Verlag. Neben dem Stammsitz in Weimar entstand der Verlag Kiepenheuer & Witsch in Köln, und in Berlin nahm der Kiepenheuer Bühnenvertrieb seine Arbeit eigenständig auf. In Leipzig wurde unter Regie der SED 1977 die Verlagsgruppe Gustav Kiepenheuer (mit den Verlagen Insel, checklist und Dieterich) geschaffen, die nach der deutschen Einheit in den Strudel der Privatisierung geriet. Archivdokumente und historische Fotos, Texte von Buchwissenschaftlern, Germanisten und Kulturhistorikern sowie die Erinnerungen beteiligter Zeitzeugen verweben sich hier auf höchst unterhaltsame Weise zu einer gesamtdeutschen Geschichte.
