Harvard Author’s Novel Pulled

Little, Brown, and Co. announced Thursday evening that it will withdraw Kaavya Viswanathan’s disputed novel, How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. The Associated Press reports that the publisher instructed retail and wholesale outlets to cease sales and to return unsold copies. A move that, according to the Washington Post is “fairly unheard of” in the publishing industry. The Post article quoted one observer as saying “they must have a very good case . . . if Little, Brown and Company is going to such extremes.”
