Who is Responsible for Policing Fraud in Nonfiction Books?

March 10, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ With the latest controversy surrounding the recall of “The Last Train From Hiroshima” by Charles Pellegrino, the book publishing industry is having to take a hard look at the line between creative nonfiction and fiction.

In a time when self-publishing and digital publishing let anyone with a computer create a book, the traditional publishing establishment is positioning itself as one that has a product of premium quality. Publishers, however, still maintain that the responsibility for errors and falsifications lies with authors.

With the introduction of the iPad and the continued success of the Kindle device, more and more electronically published books will see increased attention. Will consumers care about the integrity of what they’re reading or do they just want a good read?
