An Editor's Notes on Writing and Writers
This is a book about writers and working with them. Editing is what I wanted to write about. But it is also about friends, some of them now dead, so it is about that, too. What follows is not strictly chronological. It bounces around a little. So did I.
Images, memorabilia, and reflections from selected career stops at Rolling Stone, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, and elsewhere.
