A ler este artigo do autor Lawrence Osborne
sobre a crise dos livros que, segundo o autor, já vem de longe. Excertos:
«[Publishing] is always in crisis, the way that people suffering from emphysema always have coughs.
Very little of the recent cutbacks and consolidation are the product of the economic meltdown. They are the result of several years of bad decisions.
In other words, publishing has drifted into the paper-thin celebrity culture that defines just about every other domain, and which is rendering American culture as dull and monotonous as anything in Western history.»
