Big Publishing: Nightmare on Agent Street
Author Chuck Palahniuk is close to broke, all thanks to his agent the (formerly?) prestigious Donadio & Olson, based in New York. It seems the firm’s bookkeeper has been fiddling the books for almost a decade and has embezzled at least US$3.4 million – money that should have gone to authors like Palahniuk.
