French publisher Plon has announced that Sylvie Audoly is henceforth director of its foreign literature department. Audoly worked as chief assistant to foreign editor Ivan Nabokov in developing the translated list for Plon and sister imprints, including Julliard, "10/18" and Orban.

Under Plon publisher Olivier Orban, Nabokov, who retired on May 31, will continue to run the prestigious Feux Croises series, with a list including Saul Bellow, William Gaddis, Norman Mailer, Nadine Gordimer, Salman Rushdie and V.S. Naipaul, together with notable authors of the next generation.
