The Year in GalleyCat: August

ifididit-goldmans-cover.jpgGalleyCat broke the news that Beaufort Books acquired If I Did It, O.J. Simpson‘s “hypothetical” “confession” to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, after the rights to the book reverted to Goldman’s surviving family members. Initial reactions were muted, even hostile—and then the book’s publisher opened up here. After that, one of the biggest aspects of the story was Barnes & Noble‘s rejection of the book…until, that is, they did the math.

⇒I interviewed former LA Times Book Review editor Steve Wasserman about taking over book reviews for TruthDig, just before he agreed to speak about “the future of book coverage” for another one of those NBCC hand-wringing sessions. (Speaking of which, did you know there’s no bookstores in Las Vegas, and hardly any left in Manhattan, and it’s all Ronald Reagan’s fault? I didn’t, either!)
