Product Details


“London-based book publisher and author Piatkus details the ups and downs of her 28 years at the helm of Piatkus Books in this chatty memoir. There’s much to admire in this bootstrapping account . . . and the authors who chose Piatkus as their house—Danielle Steel, VC Andrews, Nora Roberts, and on and on. Lots of industry gossip, some decent explanations of book trends and implications, and, at the end . . .  Much to learn from an early serial entrepreneur.”
