BOOKSELLER MAKES AMENDS

Catalyst November Issue 2001

In the September Catalyst we did a story on how two booksellers, the Book-of-the-Month Club and BookCloseouts, were uncritically promoting John Cornwell’s book Hitler’s Pope. In both instances, the description of the book read more like an endorsement than an objective review. We published the names and addresses of who to write to; many of you obviously did. The result was that BookCloseouts apologized and rewrote the blurb for the book. We did not hear from the Book-of-the-Month Club.

Congratulations to all those who wrote a letter.
