Roger Tagholm: "In a piece in the New York Times snappily entitled ‘Puttin’ Off the Ritz – The New Austerity in Publishing’, the literary agent Binky Urban was quoted as saying: “Books can only support a certain retail price. It’s not like you have books that can be Manolo Blahniks and books that can be Cole Haan. Books are books. A book by James Patterson costs the same as a book by some poet.’No, that’s not true, either for the publisher or the public. How many poets receive the same advance as Patterson?"

"Books are books."I think a lot of book collectors would disagree with that.
