As much as the world scoffed at 50 Shades of Grey, no one is scoffing at the massive bonus Random House employees are receiving this holiday season!
At Random House, Employees Will Enjoy 5,000 Shades of Green — New York Times — Leslie Kaufman
This year, Random House had the good fortune to publish E. L. James’s “Fifty Shades of Grey,” about an inexperienced college student who falls in love with an older man with a taste for trying her up and whipping her, among other delights. The book has topped the New York Times paperback best-seller list for 37 weeks and counting. The sequels “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” have been in the top five for a similar amount of time.
The e-books have been best sellers even longer.
Also, Random House has had other big best sellers including “Gone Girl,” a mystery by Gillian Flynn that has sold over one million copies; “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed; and John Grisham’s latest, “The Racketeer.”
