Today we saw another first for self-publishing. A self-published work was named to the best-books of the year list of the highly respected and ultra-tough book reviewer for the New York Times, Michiko Kakutani.

The book is The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever by Alan Sepinwall. She called the book “a smart, observant look at 12 ‘great millennial dramas’ — including ‘The Sopranos,’ The Wire,’ ’24,’ ‘Friday Night Lights,’ ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ — that transformed the TV landscape and moved the small screen out from under the shadow of the movies.” Unlike in the other nine blurbs, she did not name a publisher.
