Morning Bites: Kirshbaum at Amazon, literary mashups, Dennis Cooper linking things, and more

  • The big news that everybody will be talking about this week at the BEA (we think?): Laurence Kirshbaum, former CEO of the Time-Warner Book Group and more recently a literary agent, “has accepted the role of Publisher for Amazon’s New York publishing office, effective July 5th.”
  • Crushable gives us a guide to literary mashups we (I think they mean the staff at Crushable) wish we could write. Our personal favorite is probably “Jane Eyre, Ghost Hunter.”
  • Pictures of Thurston Moore and Eileen Myles at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Brooklyn Vegan.
