QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ZINZI CLEMMONS ACCUSATIONS

Question-mark

THE MATTER discussed in our previous post, about A.K. Blakemore’s May accusation against Penguin UK editor Donald Futers, only raises more questions.

WHO wrote the first statement Andre Naffis-Sahely tweeted out?

WHY a confidentiality agreement? (Did money change hands?)

WHY would Andre Naffis-Sahely go after his own editor? Merely because said editor, Donald Futers, ignored Naffis-Sahely’s wife, Zinzi Clemmons, at a dinner? (IS it a case, as journalist Jedidajah Otte suggested, simply of bruised egos?)

(A lesson in both Diaz and Futers cases: Avoid literary dinners!)

HOW precarious is Donald Futers’ position as Penguin UK Poetry Editor? He seems to have obtained that prestigious job right out of Cambridge. How does one explain that one? A Very Important patron?

DID UK reporters ask or find answers for these questions?

MORE QUESTIONS upcoming.
