Here’s an excerpt from the article: “publisher Jonathan Karp fired senior editor Sarah Hochman this morning, confirmed a source at Simon & Schuster…Her authors included literary forger Lee Israel, who wrote a memoir of her exploits in 2008, and classicist Daniel Mendelsohn, whose next book Simon acquired at auction last summer.”
In 2008, the New York Times interviewed Hochman about her surreal job of editing a memoir by famous faker. Israel had forged a number of autographs and notes from famous writers, including Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward. “We try to think about what the author is saying and how she is saying it,” explained Hochman.
