The online retailer Amazon has been likened to the militant group Isis by one of the world’s most powerful literary agents.
Andrew Wylie, the US-based agent who counts Martin Amis and Philip Roth among his many clients, condemned the “brutality” of Amazon’s tactics in a speech to the international festival of authors in Toronto.
Not heard of Amazon executing people in the street.
In March he said: “If you have a choice between the plague and Amazon, pick the plague.”
A tad over the top maybe?
