In ANOTHER LIFE, Korda provides us with a precisely rendered account of publishing and authorship in the days before self-publishing and the extremes of marketing hype came to exert their formidable influences on the industry. Having written bestsellers of his own (such as POWER!) and worked with Simon and Schuster as an editor for some of the most celebrated names in U.S. literature, Korda was particularly well-positioned to write this “Memoir of Other People.”

Not only is it one of the better books that an aspiring writer can read to learn about the mechanics and history of publishing, it is also one of the most entertaining with profiles of such literary and political icons as Truman Capote, Jacqueline Susann, Jesse Jackson, Ronald Reagan, Tennessee Williams, Harold Robbins, Larry McMurtry, Joan Crawford, and many others.
