Couldn’t be more delighted

Wrote a little while ago about the nonsense economics of last season’s crop of ‘celeb books’. I think maybe I was a little unfair partly I think it was in frustration at having just done a circuit of excellent small publishers with some very good books who just couldn’t get heard above the celebrity din. There is, of course, always place for books about interesting people who’ve done interesting things I think my real issue was that so many of the books that suck so much money out of the system are about vacuous, irritating tossers.

And speaking of which was pleased to see this article in The Times indicating publishers may think twice before getting involved in such nonsense again.
