Review: Another Life

Another Life by Michael Korda was a very interesting memoir on the publishing world.  It contains a lot of interesting information.  Although it contains sufficient detail to interest a casual reader, overall it’s most useful to a writer — mostly because writers need to know how to deal with publishers.

At one point in the book, I was worried that Michael Korda was going to take a huge detour and talk about his forays into writing and abandon the editorial side altogether, but he didn’t.  The only reason I’d complain about that is that I already know what it’s like to be a writer — I don’t know what it’s like being an editor, or how a publishing house works.  The casual reader would probably be indifferent to that fact, but the publishing side was what most interested me.
