Bertelsmann’s €900 million cost-saving program impacts first-half results.
“Crown has lost a great storyteller, chronicler, and friend in Dominick Dunne, with whom we enjoyed a more than twenty-five year association that included five best-selling novels, two collections of essays, and a memoir. He was so excited about his forthcoming book and we are deeply saddened that he did not live to enjoy its publication. At the time Dominick died, the manuscript was in the final stages of editing, and is currently scheduled to come out in December.” – Tina Constable, VP, Publisher, Crown
