Books Trash Publisher Saves the Day

I wrote 2 days ago about Random House refusing to publish a novel about Muhammadís wife Aishah due to threats from Muslims. The novel, called The Jewel of Medina, has been picked up by several publishers in Europe and it looks as though Jewel might have been picked up in America by Beaufort Books.
Beaufort Books, of course, published the icky If I Did It book by O.J. Simpson. They seem to be making a living off of publishing controversial books that nobody else will touch. In the case of Simpson’s book, that’s kind of creepy. In the case of Jewel, it’s commendable, but still obviously a money-grab. Jewel of Medina might be published as early as late October.
