The Paper Plus Group issued a press release today saying they won’t stock Breaking Silence: The Kahui Case, which is being written by Ian Wishart in conjunction with King.
A short time ago the Warehouse also announced it would not be stocking the book, while Whitcoulls was planning to make an annoucement tomorrow.
Not all publicity is good publicity.
Ian Wishart is always at the back of my mind – every now and then it occurs to me he’s been ominously quiet, and then he publishes, say, a biography of Helen Clark (definitely a lesbian, according to Wishart. Huge lesbian. Big, big lesbian. There – I’ve just summarised the entire book for you). And I remarked to a friend just the other day that Wishart had been laying low, and now here we are. You can’t say he isn’t industrious. Utterly amoral and a blight on the country, sure – but he works hard.
