Humans of New York blogger Brandon Stanton has photographed Yaniv Soha, an editor at St. Martin’s Press, and Brian DeFiore, founder of the DeFiore & Company literary agency.
Stanton shot the picture at Madison Square Park (embedded to the side). The two publishing executives posed with funny hats (provided by Stanton) and copies of the New York Times bestselling Humans of New York book.
In a Facebook comment, Stanton complimented the two men calling them both “great guys and good sports.” He also appreciated that they were “two of the earliest believers in HONY.” We’ve embedded a photo below featuring Stanton with Soha and DeFiore.
The Twitter revolution continues apace as two 19-year-old college freshman just sold “Twitterature: The World’s Greatest Books, Now Presented in Twenty Tweets or Less” to Penguin.
Penguin’s John Siciliano bought the book, and the deal was brokered by Brian DeFiore at DeFiore and Company. According to LA Observed, the book will be “a humorous retelling” of literary classics in 140-characters or less. The book was pitched by Emmett Rensin (who is the son of David Rensin, a LA Observed writer) and Alex Aciman.
Here’s more from the website: “Like any good revolution, this one started in a college dormitory. Sitting in our suite at the end of another long day at the University of Chicago, we had an epiphany of the sort that many men wait for until their golden years, and which for too many others never comes before the grave. What, we asked, are the grandest ventures of our or any generation? And what, to give this a bit more focus, best expresses the souls of 21st century Americans?” (Via Carolyn Kellogg)
