The book publishing industry may be in the midst of an existential crisis, but you wouldn’t know it at Random House. The publisher of E. L. James’s mystifyingly successful “Fifty Shades of Grey” is sharing the wealth this holiday season in the form of $5,000 Christmas bonuses for every employee in the company -- from editors to mailroom clerks.
The New York Times’ Leslie Kaufman reports that Random House held its annual Christmas party in New York on Wednesday, when Markus Dohle, the company’s CEO, made the announcement. Perhaps not surprisingly, the announcement met with several minutes’ worth of cheering by partygoers.
