Publishers Weekly Gives Epistolophilia a Starred Review

10 seconds - a star is born by winterofdiscontent

Of the publishing industry’s four major trade magazines (the other three include Kirkus, Booklist, and Library Journal), Adelle Waldman writes at Slate that “Publishers Weekly, or PW, is the biggie—it plays Coke to Kirkus‘ Pepsi.” A “'starred’ review in PW still increases a book’s chance of getting media coverage and showing up in your neighborhood bookstore." These also determine which books Amazon promotes."
