FYI France EXTRA: Jason Epstein,
on the text-e econference


A reminder that Jason Epstein is the featured guest this month -- until Jan 15 -- on the text-e econference. It's free, and online.

Epstein is the publishing industry editor / guru extraordinaire who is credited with creations as varied as "Anchor Books", "The New York Review of Books", "The Library of America", "The Reader's Catalog". He has worked / is working with Norman Mailer, Vladimir Nabokov, E.L. Doctorow, Gore Vidal, Philip Roth, Jane Jacobs, Elaine Pagels, Helen Prejean, Richard Holbrooke...

He also "received the first National Book Award for Distinguished Service to American Letters and the Curtis Benjamin Award from the Association of American Publishers for 'inventing new kinds of publishing and editing'". Epstein has contributed much, in his own writing, to the "transition in media" debate which so many of us are fussing about. See his Book Business: Publishing, Past, Present and Future (Norton, 2001), and NYRB articles.

More about Epstein at,


-- and there is more about text-e in the previously - posted FYI France issue which appears below.

So, this is your chance to participate personally, or just lurk, in an online intellectual give - and - take between one of US publishing's most notable and creative editors, and a very interesting collection of primarily European thinkers, on,

-- text-e discussions are in English or in French or in Italian.

And Happy New Year!
