From the New York Times:
As I was in the final throes of getting my most recent book into print, an employee at the publishing company sent me an e-mail message that stopped me in my tracks.
I had met her just once, at a meeting. We were having an e-mail exchange about some crucial detail involving publishing rights, which I thought was being worked out well. Then she wrote: “Itâ€™s difficult to have this conversation by e-mail. I sound strident and you sound exasperated.”
