Update: Billionaire Lit

Today Amy Benfer of the Metro newspapers is at it again: profiling another author from a super-wealthy background-- in this instance with a spread about Amanda Filipacchi's latest novel, Love Creeps. (Amanda's father is billionaire founder of the Hachette-Filipacchi publishing empire; Elle magazine Can you believe that Amanda's writing career has received lavish publicity from the day it began? No!)

As Amy Benfer regularly profiles authors who represent 0.000001% of the population, I think she's now due to give some attention to writers who represent and speak for the mass of the rest of us-- those at the Underground Literary Alliance. (We have a number of books coming out, and will be staging exciting shows.) One can e-mail her at to let her know.
