We imagine there are lots of arguments over balancing the checkbook and lavish parties with nobody wanting to clean up. Oh, and the blissful “we’re finally together” period — no matter how long the relationship, you simply cannot know someone until you’ve lived with them for a while. Still we wish publishing’s newest happy couple the best. Australia’s Text Publishing has entered into a joint venture with the UK’s Canongate Books. As always we are amused and bemused by the high falutin’ words of corporate press releases. In this case, we (and, we hope, Text’s authors) are reassured that the publisher’s independence will remain intact.
