Today’s links of interest:

  • Nancy Huston Too Hot To Publish in US?
    So, they’re asking her to do major (or minor, depending on who you ask) revisions to avoid offending US readers? This makes one ask who, precisely, they expect to be buying these books — and can they be offended?
  • O is for obstacle
    How fame, fortune, and Oprah nearly destroyed Janet Fitch’s career. Which reminds us…we need to put "Paint It Black" on top of the towering pile o’ books.
  • Talk of bribes rocks French book awards
    Again, we ask, why can’t the United States have this much fun with book awards?
