Ugh, really rotten news for people who enjoyed reading Editor & Publisher and/or Kirkus Reviews; both will be eliminated as of the end of the year, according to reports released today. Please imagine me shaking my fist at Nielsen right now; I really am outraged on behalf of E&P editor Greg Mitchell and all the employees of both publications.
Regulars here at this blog know I’m kind of an old fashioned book person (the discussion we had over the recent Sherman Alexie interview told me I’m not alone), so I’m sure people will indulge me as I sing a little requiem for the loss of yet another publishing industry stalwart. In recognition of that, I’m reposting this old Salman Rushdie interview from May of 2007; Rushdie’s defense of mainstream literary criticism is worth another listen.

Thanks for all the reviews and reports over the years, E&P and Kirkus!
