U.S. publishing companies continue to separate wheat from chaff

Carol Higgins Clark, mystery author following in the footsteps of her mother, Mary Higgins Clark, has purchased a $1.95 million Manhattan condo on East 72nd St. with a view of the river and the sky. Her former 2-bedroom home was not big enough to encompass the younger Clark and her Important Books: “when you have only one other room … it starts to feel crowded,” she says.

So the future of literary fiction may be in the toilet, but don’t worry: the corporatization of publishing will continue to ensure quality!
