Keep Your Eye on the Observer‘s Book Guy

If you aren’t keeping an eye out for Leon Neyfakh‘s byline in the New York Observer, you should be; he’s quickly emerging as one of the local media’s sharpest observers of the publishing industry. Last Friday alone, he had items on a new book deal for industry pundit Albert Greco and James Atlas‘s attempt to brand his revamped book line. And that was just a day after he reported on Michael Beschloss‘s move from Simon & Schuster to Crown.
