The New York Times
New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller describes his staffers’ unending desire to write books. Noting the decline in print publishing, he writes, “Sure, I would miss books — and so, by the way, would my children — but at least the death of books would put an end to the annoying fact that everyone who works for me is either writing one or wants to. I would get my staff back!” Keller, by the way, has signed two book contracts, didn’t follow through on either, and is repaying an advance. He has a stack of his staffers’ books that he means to read someday.
