FYI What Book Editors Do

I recently bought a copy of Peter Ginna’s What Editors Do: The Art, Craft & Business Of Book Editing

I’d had a watch on it on various websites, but it’s one of those titles that never gets discounted or which becomes available for sale used, so I forked out £15.

Ten pages in it’s worth the money.

I read somewhere that people with OCD are attracted to literary jobs such as book editor. It made me wonder if their homes are incredibly neat with everything in exactly the correct place!
