Publishers Weekly reports that Jerome Kramer, managing director of The Book Standard, has “left the company” (corporate parlance for shitcanned), along with two other Book Standard staffers, which Galleycat identifies as Patrick Eves and Kimberly Maul. The layoffs came “as part of an evaluation of VNU’s business portfolio.” Taking Kramer’s place will be Tracey Davies.
I’ve made my wisecracks about the Book Standard over the years (particularly towards Maul), but I do hope that Kramer, Eves and Maul land on their feet.
