Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Fifty years after the publication of his first book, George Greenfield looks back over a memorable half-century in the book world. With humor and insight he comments on the businesses of publishing and agenting, and delightfully recalls many of the anecdotes and incidents accumulated during a distinguished career: encounters with Robert Maxwell (who offered $10 million for Margaret Thatcher's memoirs only to withdraw the following day), Jeffrey Archer andJohn Le Carré are recalled with appropriate relish or affection. Informative and informed, evocative and entertaining, A Smattering of Monsters is a special kind of memoir: self-deprecating, honest, and hugely enjoyable.
