NEW YORK (AP) — “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn is a familiar name on bestseller lists, but her personal reading tastes run to books most haven’t heard about. She and Emmy-winning writer-producer-actor Lena Waithe will each run imprints at Zando, a new house headed by Molly Stern, who helped establish Flynn when she was the publisher of Crown. Stern founded Zando in 2020 as a platform for publishing its own books and for launching imprints by others. “Lena Waithe and Gillian Flynn are dream publishing partners for Zando,” Stern said in a statement. “As Hillman Grad has grown, Rishi and I have had the opportunity to support underrepresented voices in film, TV and music.

PARIS (AP) — Lionel Messi will miss Paris Saint-Germain’s next French league game at last-placed Metz after a knock to his left knee. Messi was taken off in the 75th minute of his home debut on Sunday, when PSG beat Lyon 2-1 in the league. PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino said he took the decision to replace Messi after noticing the six-time Ballon d’Or winner repeatedly touched his knee. Messi, who hit the crossbar with a curling free kick, looked angry at being taken off. PSG has won its first six league matches to open a five-point lead over second-placed Marseille, which has one match in hand.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A plaque and a palm tree weren’t enough to mark the swagger and star power of Burt Reynolds. Anderson and her son with Reynolds, Quinton, chose the spot where Reynolds’ cremated remains were laid to rest in February, because it was next to a palm tree and water, which evoked his native Florida. “It’s absolutely beautiful, it’s exactly what we both envisioned,” Quinton Reynolds told The Associated Press after a brief private ceremony where a crowd of several dozen people who were close to Reynolds gathered to mark the occasion. “That was one of the things we talked about, do we do baby Burt, do we do middle-aged Burt, do we do ‘Smokey’ Burt?’” Anderson told The AP. Cassity told Reynolds’ family and friends at the ceremony that his grave is near those of the heartthrobs of two earlier eras of cinema, Tyrone Power and Rudolph Valentino.

(AP) — A key hearing before a Delaware judge could determine whether the Boy Scouts of America might be able to emerge from bankruptcy later this year. The Boy Scouts, based in Irving, Texas, sought bankruptcy protection in February 2020 amid an onslaught of lawsuits by men who said they were sexually abused as children. It was called for the judge to consider whether the Boy Scouts’ explanation of a reorganization plan, filed in July, contained sufficient detail for abuse claimants to make informed decisions on whether to accept it. The delay is being sought by the official victims committee, along with several law firms and insurance companies. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Laura Selber Silverstein must decide whether to grant the postponement or proceed with the hearing on a disclosure statement outlining the BSA’s reorganization plan.
