The Latest Publishing Scandal
The publisher of a book about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima whose author relied on a fraudulent source has said it will stop printing and shipping copies because of further questions about the writer’s sources.
The publisher, Henry Holt & Company, says it is offering refunds to retailers and wholesalers for “The Last Train From Hiroshima,” by Charles Pellegrino, an account of both the mission to drop the bomb and its victims. The company had printed about 18,000 copies of the book.
