4: Glassesgate, green publishing and defending literary agents

October 7, 2010 at 8:00AM • 13 minutes • Wiki Entry

Iain takes to the mic to record a short podcast about what’s been going on in the publishing industry. He starts with the incredible scenes at Jonathan Franzen’s book launch, where some crafty punter pinched his specs and ran like the wind. All very amusing, but was the coverage of the incident a bit much? Iain moved on to e-readers and whether they are more environmentally friendly than good ol’ printed books. He makes a comparison with the evolution of the iPod. Finally, Iain defends the role of literary agents, editors and other publishing types who have a hand in getting a book to print.
