Graydon Carter weighs in on Amazon

From today’s Publisher’s Lunch:

More Amazon, and Publishing

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter‘s December issue letter is online in advance of the issue itself, in which Keith Gessen “lays out a vivid and highly original account of the almost schoolyard conflict going on now between Amazon and the French-owned publishing giant Hachette.” Carter says Amazon’s response to Hachette “amounts to an economic blockade” and says of Amazon ceo Jeff Bezos, “make no mistake about it: he’s not the underdog in this pitched battle; he is the overdog. The book business is puny compared to its visibility and importance to the nation’s well-being.”
