Interesting article, dirac, thanks. Am I correct in my impression that the author, glorying in the Penguin past, is not optimistic about the future of Penguins?

Thank you, Farrell Fan. His tone does sound a trifle elegiac, but although I recall a where-do-they-go-next article about Penguin from some time ago, I haven't heard recently that the imprint is in trouble. I'm not too crazy about some of the redecorated new editions, myself.
