The Decline of Literature in an Anti-White World

The Decline of Literature in an Anti-White World

by Jeff Davis

An article on the SmokingGun reports: “A New York publisher this week filed lawsuits against several prominent writers who failed to deliver books for which they received hefty contractual advances, records show. The Penguin Group’s New York State Supreme Court breach of contract/unjust enrichment complaints include copies of book contracts signed by the respective defendants.”



Penguin is a major publisher and doesn’t take getting stiffed lightly. The article notes the publisher is seeking repayments from: “ ‘Prozac Nation’ author Elizabeth Wurtzel, who signed a $100,000 deal in 2003 to write ‘a book for teenagers to help them cope with depression.’ Penguin wants Wurtzel to return her $33,000 advance with at least $7500 in interest.”

“Blogger Ana Marie Cox, who signed in 2006 to author a ‘humorous examination of the next generation of political activists,’ is being dunned for her $81,250 advance and at least $50,000 in interest. Her Penguin contract totaled $325,000.”

“Rebecca Mead, a staff writer at The New Yorker, owes $20,000 and at least $2000 in interest, according to Penguin, which struck a $50,000 deal in 2003 for ‘a collection of the author’s journalism.’ ”

“Holocaust survivor Herman Rosenblatt was signed for $40,000 in 2008 to describe how he survived a concentration camp, because of a young girl who snuck him food. 17 years later the two met on a blind date and have been together ever since, married 50 years. While Rosenblat’s story was hailed by Oprah Winfrey as the ‘single greatest love story’ she had told on the air, it turned out to be a fabrication. Penguin wants him to repay a $30,000 advance and at least $10,000 in interest.”

Apparently, Penguin is soliciting work from people, who don’t even bother to complete their assignment, and in the case of Mr. Rosenblat, a fraud!!

These cases involve three women and one Jewish man. Is Penguin even soliciting work from White males anymore? Maybe that’s why we haven’t seen another Steinbeck, Hemingway, Faulkner or Orwell lately. They’re not the right gender or tribe to get their works published today.
