Roger Ebert, The Collected Wikipedia Edits

5 John Prine Zoom Out

Roger Ebert (1942-2013) was a film critic with a Pulitzer Prize-winning column syndicated to over 200 newspapers worldwide, a popular TV show, and possibly more visibility than any critic in cinema history. He was also possibly a semi-anonymous Wikipedia editor. This project collated the Wikipedia edits in question, which weren’t written with the purpose of authorship, but when framed in a hardcover book it fitted these requirements. It was launched like a regular book with press releases and media interviews, even though it was only a single edition.
