Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0061096083, Mass Market Paperback)For anyone pondering a career in publishing, The Bestseller--a fictional account of the frayed egos, sorted ideas, and strange economics that fuel the book industry--may be a dose of harsh reality. Olivia Goldsmith has created a tale of Davis & Dash, a Manhattan house run by an unspectacular publisher and a talented, but foul, editor. The new line of books doesn't exactly threaten to populate the Pulitzer list, though there's a serious 1,114-page work by a novelist who killed herself after her 23rd rejection letter. Goldsmith, who obviously deserves to be among the published, manages to puzzle these disparate pieces together into a cohesive story of the powers that be and those that hope to.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:44:46 -0400)
A novel on the publishing industry whose protagonists are a high-powered New York publisher and five novelists whose books he is publishing. The latter range from a fading romance writer, to a girl who hung herself because no one would accept her manuscript.
