PublishAmerica and the Pulitzer Prize (strange bedfellows and then some.)
Why would a Pulitzer Prize winner need to go the POD route? The usual explanations come to mind: inferior writing, poor knowledge of the publishing industry, alcoholism, extortion, complete deterioration of all intellectual faculties. But I would love to know--especially since he went PA.
Most likely of all, though, is the case that traditional publishers have whittled the "open slots" for new books down to an all-time low, and reserved them for commercial, low-risk titles. And once again a valued author/book gets pushed aside. It's far more important to find out why men have nipples, isn't it?
