Moi on Book Publishing

Steve Sailer was kind enough to highlight a comment I made on his blog about the demographics of the American book publishing world from 1985ish to 2001ish, a stretch when I was professionally covering the field. (I dropped about a half a dozen comments on Steve’s posting, so if you’re in that kind of mood, scrawl down and give those a look too.) Ah, the memories … Especially of the hundreds of fancy lunches I enjoyed, paid for by money that in a just world would have been going to authors instead of into my belly. Although I couldn’t be more happy about being retired, I do miss those fabulous meals — Manhattan’s great restaurants are really something to experience. In any case: many thanks to Steve, who these days always seems to be on an inspired tear of one sort or another. If you value his work as much as I do, why not make a donation?

    Sailer is problematic for me, because while he does bring up topics and ideas not found in mainstream outposts, is generally sensible and thoughtful about them, and is willing to court controversy, he tends to attract an angry, hateful audience. For that reason, I stay out of his comment section.
