    Lord gives voice to a story of drive and determination. He made history but is aware that his story is intertwined with publishing's constant evolution. This book is for anyone who wants to understand what it takes to outpace a changing industry and for writers who want to understand what goes on behind the scenes. What a fascinating man.

    In this touching and highly self-revealing memoir, Mr. Lord captures the depth of literary evolution in this country over the last sixty years.
    He also shows the courage, tenacity and skill it takes to bring great works of literature to life. His candid revelation of  the human drama
    of the creative process of both the authors who worked with him and himself is riveting. I finished the book feeling tremendous admiration 
    for Mr. Lord and his undying tenacity in the pursuit and support of what and who he believed in. I also felt  envious of the writers who were fortunate
    enough to be his clients.
