Thanks for this great interview and for reminding me of this book. I can tell I will love it and have ordered it, and probably will review it.

Richard: Thanks. I'm glad you'll read this wonderful book. Louis

I just discovered Mentor through the NY Times book review, and I'm fascinated--because it deals with the ups and downs of an author (as I am), trying to get published and given some recognition. In fact the opening portion of my new manuscript deals with the aggrivations of getting the contract (which I eventually did), then the tribulations and strategies of the author (me) to get recognition (I got some) in the vastly complex and unfair world of publishing. I eagerly await delivery of my copy of Mentor. Meanwhile I'm seeking reviews and more info about it. I learned from the interview posted here. I feel some kinship already.


Tom Grimes' tribulations involved the creative world of a major American figure, Frank Conroy. My tribulations and (relative) triumphs involve the creative world of the many-faceted American figure, humorist Jean Shepherd. My new manuscript caries on the Shepherd-quest. I hope that Grimes carries on his authorship-quest, wherever it leads him.

As a long suffering Mets fan, I think it's Tom's involvement with the team that probably doomed Season's End. But seriously, I liked the book. There's a lot in it that every writer can relate to. BTW: I always eat eggs on the road.

Men vad hnder nr alla dessa taktik stranda? Vad hnder nr trots alla aggressiva marknadsfringskampanjer en produkt fortfarande vgrar att lmna lagret i den klmtning tillverkaren hrnne vilja? Ja, d r det dags att ta marknadsfringen till nsta niv jmte erbjuda produkten gratis till ett antal kunder.
