HK, from another perspective

Simon Owens sent me a link to an article he'd written about Harriet Klausner, with interviews with "publishers, professional book reviewers and novelists to see whether she has any effect on the publishing industry." See "Harriet Klausner: the publishing industry's secret weapon?"

Keir Graff of Booklist sums it up well: “I think her industriousness is an entertaining phenomenon, but she’s perhaps a better example of compulsive behavior than genuine book reviewing."
