Some comments about The Author

‘It is a cool pleasure to receive The Author each quarter.  Essential reading for all grownups in our industry and for everyone who cares about authors’ – Jonathan Lloyd, C.E.O of Curtis Brown.

‘If publishers were to subscribe to The Author magazine (and read it), books would be better, arguments would be less feverish, and defections fewer.’ – Richard Charkin, Bloomsbury plc.
