Peter Carey: No To Assange, No To Amazon, And No To Man Booker Prize

No! No! No!
Panzer made a quick trip to The Bookseller site today. He found a post there by Sarah Shaffi documenting her interview with Peter Carey. During the interview Mr. Carey strayed from talk about his new novel Amnesia to talk about Julian Assange, Amazon's dominance in the book market world, and the Man Booker Prize.

Mr Carey revealed in the interview he turned down an offer to co-author a book with Julian Assange. He also spoke of his belief that Amazon gained its dominance in the retail book market because publishers allowed it. Finally, Mr. Carey stressed he is unimpressed with the Man Booker Prize since they have allowed American authors to be added and thus diminished the Prize.
