Abstract "The editor-in-chief of Simon & Schuster writes with wit and candor about becoming the editor of The New Yorker, and the challenges and satisfactions of running America's preeminent magazine,"--NoveList.
Abstract After editing The Columbia Review, staging plays at Cambridge, and a stint in the greeting-card department of Macy's, Gottlieb stumbled into a job at Simon and Schuster. By the time he left to run Alfred A. Knopf a dozen years later, he was the editor in chief. At Knopf, Gottlieb edited an astonishing list of authors. Now he writes with wit and candor about succeeding William Shawn as the editor of The New Yorker, and the challenges and satisfactions of running America's preeminent magazine.
