Private: Godoff ouster precipitates author exodus

A mass exodus of authors from Random House after the recent ouster of Ann Godoff, publisher and editor-in-chief, is “raising questions among authors, agents and critics about the future of the venerable Random House imprint, the home of William Faulkner, Robert Penn Warren and Truman Capote, and an important institution in modern American letters.”

Godoff was snapped up by Penguin Putnam and will be launching a new imprint that she says is “the perfect environment for those authors whose careers I’ve shared for many years.”
