  • The rough guide to why Penguin Classics is publishing Morrissey’s autobiography.
  • The most specific niche calendar ever created: “Tattooed Librarians of the Ocean State.”
  • Herewith, famous books from every state.
  • One in ten Icelanders will publish a book. As one young author tells the BBC, it can indeed get competitive. “Especially as I live with my mother and partner, who are also full-time writers. But we try to publish in alternate years so we do not compete too much.”
