Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has pulled Jonah Lehrer‘s Imagine: How Creativity Works after the author admitted to fabricating Bob Dylan quotes. Until December 31, the company will refund readers for the book.
If you want a refund from the hardcover book, you can take the book back to the bookstore where you bought it. Digital book buyers must “submit requests to the retailer from which the eBook was originally purchased.”
In addition, you can mail the book directly to the publisher along with a proof of purchase. The publisher will send you “$30 within 30 days of receipt of book ($26 for book, plus $4 to cover mailing charges).” Here is the address:
Attn: Trade Sales/KR
222 Berkeley St.
Boston, MA. 02116
The publisher has also taken out a number of ads reminding readers that they can get refunds for the book.
