Caught between two books is an interesting column by The Guardian\'s Robert McCrum on being an author.
He says he has a friend, who, through a chain of happy coincidences too complex to go into here, he got himself a new literary agent who was able to attract serious offers to publish from no fewer than three well-known imprints.
It\'s a nice look at the book publishing industry, from the inside.
\"The immediate problem with the two-book deal is that, in the excitement of competitive acquisition, publishers generally overpay. Dreams turn sour.\"
