David Davidar launches new publishing company

According to MobyLives, former Penguin Canada president David Davidar is starting his own publishing house. Based out of Dehli, India, Aleph Book Company is a partnership with major Indian publisher and distributor Rupa Publications.

Davidar left Penguin a year ago after being asked to leave the company, following charges of sexual harassment brought against him by a former employee.

At the time, Davidar claimed he was quitting Penguin to focus on writing his third novel. Ithaca (McClelland & Stewart) follows the rise and fall of a publishing star. The book is scheduled for release in October.
