Anybody know what's really going on at Les Éditions du Seuil? Thierry Pech quit abruptly; Olivier Bétourné is now taking over. Feel free to share gossip and rumors.

Thanks for the update on this one. I didn't know the fur was flying (again) on the rue Jacob.

From the outside, it looks like some of the old hands have had enough of the fallout from the Martiniere takeover. Wasn't there a wave of editorial departures in 2005-06 after the first dose?

Just speculation on my part, however, I haven't heard anything. Everyone I knew at Seuil has already left (!).
