Michael Korda's career in publishing spans more than 40 years. Now editor in chief of Simon & Schuster, he has edited the work of U.S. presidents, British royalty, first-time novelists, and veteran bestsellers. To coincide with the celebration of Simon & Schuster's 75th anniversary, Korda has written a book about what he knows best: In his new memoir, Another Life, he shares anecdotes and intimate portraits, offering glimpses behind the scenes, unrivaled gossip, and personal knowledge of practically everybody who matters in the world of book publishing.

New York Observer - Robert Gottlieb

Michael Korda's Another Life is not just a horse of a different color, it's a different kind of animal altogether — a book so diverting, so lively, and so well intentioned that it calls for a new classification: a Book of Fabulous Beasts...while [Korda] doesn't exactly spill the secrets of the confessional, he comes close enough to make this an elevated work of gossip; in other words, the kind of book we all like to read.... What makes this book not only amusing and instructive but appealing is that his close and canny observations are conveyed with a writer's glee, never with sour resentment or envy.
