In an e-mail to Zoo Press authors on April 18, [Neil] Azevedo wrote that the press has indeed discontinued publication operations and that he was planning to destroy the backlist of Zoo Press books unless authors bought them from him for $1.49 per book. He gave a deadline of April 25.
Please forgive the way I sound in the most recent Poets & Writers article. I am horrified by what they printed, making me sound glib, uncaring, solipsistic and sarcastic. Those of you who know me well know I am none of these things. I have given several interviews and never have I been so grossly misrepresented. My goal in giving the interview was to express my sadness at the dissolution of Zoo, explain how the death of my father left me emotionally paralyzed, apologize and assert my respect for all the Zoo Press authors, David Baker, Richard Howard and everyone I let down. The tone of the interview, which lasted about ten minutes, I'd characterize as sedate and deferential (for my part). I'm deeply disappointed P&W decontextualized me at my most vulnerable for what I can only assume was for a story with a neat villain. I am sorry if this misrepresentation hurt anyone personally and I can only beg for your forgiveness.Yours remorsely and in genuine deference, Neil
