In a Publishers Weekly column (8/23/10), Victoria’s former colleague Beth Wareham wrote: “She has shaped the best of a generation of book promoters . . . . an iconic, singular intelligence that challenges and inspires all her publicists, authors, and colleagues.” Gerald Howard, Executive Editor of Doubleday, commented: “I worked with Victoria Meyer for 8 years at Viking Penguin, and with a sincere nod to all the great publicists I have had the privilege of working with since, she is unmatched in the industry in terms of cool and class and effectiveness.”
