Sunday Star Times axes book editor?
The book trade grapevine is abuzz this morning with news that Mark Broatch's position as Books and Arts editor at the Sunday Star Times has been axed.
This is bad news, for Mark of course, but also for books in particular and the arts in general.
The Culture section of the SST was the only reason I bought the paper so perhaps I can save myself $3 each Sunday from now on?
Mark, an accomplished author as well as a skilled journalist, was a popular figure in the literary world and he will be sorely missed.
