Author gets dumped, eBay sellers rejoice

Author gets dumped, eBay sellers rejoice: Nothing like creating an instant collector’s item to light up eBay. Now that Little, Brown & Co. has completely pulled the plug on Harvard student Kaavya Viswanathan’s cribbed novel (they had previously said they were going to revise and reissue it), there’s a flood of copies being auctioned. (Sidenote: My in-house focus group has read the book and judged it funny. The focus group has decided not to crank up an auction yet, however.)

    NYTimes says there was copying from another novel as well.
