And in a revelatory account that reads as compulsively as fiction, Another Life paints a vivid picture of publishing's glitterati, including Jacqueline Susann, who liberated women's fiction--and terrorized a publishing house, and Tennessee Williams, who nourished his genius on four-course vodka lunches. A veritable Who's Who of stage, screen, and letters, Another Life is the deft interweaving of publishing at it most fascinating--and storytelling at its finest.
"An astonishing saga...highly entertaining."
"A joy to read."
--The New York Times
"A delicious find...[Korda] knows how to tell a wonderful story....His prodigious memory of events, his love of the eccentric and his pure glee about being alive are so engaging that it's impossible not to like this book."
--The Washington Post Book World
"Richly entertaining...not just another insider's view of a supposedly glamorous industry, but a narrative in the style of some full-blooded novelist."
"A thoroughly entertaining read...You don't have to be in the publishing business--or even a New Yorker--to appreciate this witty memoir."
--The Wall Street Journal
