Don't worry, Sara - there are benefits

Now there’s an odd statistic. Three out of the last four editors, or editors-in-chief, of the book trade journals on each side of the Atlantic have lost their jobs: Nick Clee (the Bookseller) Liz Thomson (Publishing News) and now Sara Nelson (Publishers Weekly). Nick and Liz are busy writing away, and I would have thought Sara will land a column somewhere very soon, if she hasn’t already. In the meantime, I hope she enjoys that liberating out-of-school feeling that still – a year on from my own redundancy (sorry, Ed, ‘laying off’) – tastes sweet.
