I always enjoy interviews with crusty, irreverent people. Laura Bennett’s interview (linked below) with literary agent and renegade publisher Andrew Wylie is downright entertaining, and it points up some truths about the publishing industry today:

  • The industry’s intransigence over digital publishing and awarding respectable digital revenues to writers. 
  • Amazon’s co-opting of publishing (along with Apple) while not bothering to use their leverage to get their books into stores.
