Famous Name Authors - Be Ashamed, Be Very Ashamed

SUMMARY: No summary available.
If you're on some of the writing-related mailing lists that I'm on, you've probably gotten email pitches from Inside Sessions featuring famous name authors' pics across the top of the screen, telling you that you too can be a famous writer. "We're looking for manuscripts" the email says. In this week's Studio 360 show, Kurt Andersen skewers this scheme delightfully. Check out the quick transcript here. In the meantime, all I have to say to Pengiun Putnam and Doris Kearns Goodwin, Melissa Banks, Nick Hornby, Sue Grafton and Kurt Vonnegut is Shame On You.
