Monday Round-Up: Spilled Milk

James Frey is serious about his come-back, so much so that he's jazzing up his forthcoming novel, Bright Shiny Morning, with jacket art by his friend Richard Prince. He's also thinking of going Ira Glass on us, with a book tour that the New York Post's Page Six likens to something that sounds more like a concert tour:

"We're talking about having bands, other authors reading their work. We may try to include some pyrotechnics," he said with a laugh."

Elsewhere, New York Times reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner David Car Johnston is pissed about how the Sunday Book Review handled his tome, Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves At Government Expense (And Stick You With The Bill). Complaints as noted by Editor & Publisher's Joe Strupp are here, the review in question itself, by Jonathan Chait, is here.

Recession arriving in T-minus now? Magazines, in trouble? Why, you don't say. Of course, it's fashion week, when even retail miracles seem possible. Unfortunately, the publishing industry doesn't have an equivalent. Unless you count BEA?
