Andrew Wylie - WSJ.com
MAY 27, 2011 | WSJ Magazine | by Daniel Gross. Profile of old
school literary agent Andrew Wylie, of the Wylie Agency and Odyssey
Editions (distributes electronic versions of books he represents through
Amazon.com)....Wylie remains a rare optimist in publishing circles,
fueled perhaps by the healthy backlists and literary estates he
represents. Information technology may be upending business models, but
he believes the global interconnection these advancements permit
provides immense opportunities for his authors....The devaluation of
quality editing and writing is sad and it's inevitable. Each house has a
large number of titles to publish, and with a difficult economy, fewer
people to handle the publications. But publishers need to become
smaller, leaner, and they will have to learn new disciplines. The whole
one-year publication process must be reduced.
