Black Tuesday

The news broke today that there will be 16 layoffs throughout Random House’s Doubleday division–cuts ranging from publicity to editorial.

In his article, Leon Neyfakh called 2008 a “painful year” for the publisher of Dan Brown’s uber-bestseller, Da Vinci Code. The NY Observer confirmed four of the cuts this afternoon.

Earlier this year, GalleyCat covered Doubleday’s launch party for the Spiegel & Grau house, capturing memories of a happier time for everyone in the industry.
