Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Tony Horwitz gives an inside look at digital publishing and his opinion of digital books versus paper (“real”) books, based on his experience writing a 40,000-word piece on the Keystone XL pipeline.
Read it here in the New York Times: I Was a Digital Best Seller!
I’d rather his wife had written the piece– and then again, I’m glad she didn’t. I wouldn’t wish this experience on her. Who knew what “best-seller” really meant?
(Horwitz is married to novelist Geraldine Brooks who won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2006 for her novel, March. March is the father from Alcott’s Little Women, and the novel is his story of being off at war.)
