At Random: The Reminiscences of Bennett Cerf
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"I've got the name for our publishing operation. We just said we were going to publish a few books on the side at random. Let's call it Random House." So recounts Bennett Cerf in his wonderfully amusing account of the making of a great publishing house.Cerf -- an incomparable raconteur, possessed of an irrepressible wit and an abiding love of books and authors -- brilliantly evokes the heady days of Random House's infancy, tracing its beginnings as an offshoot of the Modern Library to its growth as a publisher of Pulitzer Prize -- winning and bestselling authors. Whether he's describing the fortuitous events that brought a particular author to Random House or the personalities that have shaped the house over the years, Cerf tells his story in a wholly engaging and accessible manner. At Random is a feast for bibliophiles and anyone who has ever wondered what goes on inside a publishing house.
