In this week’s London Review of Books Elif Batuman has a great piece about Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence, both the book and the place. It would pair well with our own Lydia Kiesling’s award-winning essay on the book from 2010.
Literary Hub has an excerpt of an essay by Chris Jackson, Editor in Chief of Random House's One World imprint on how we can actually achieve diversity in the publishing industry. "What’s the payoff of having a more diverse workforce? Well, there’s obviously the moral case to be made—and that’s a case that I think applies to any industry. But in book publishing, I think we have a special obligation, given our central role in shaping the culture." And he shares the origin story of how he started to work with Ta-Nehisi Coates.
