Publishers battle over Keith Richards
25.07.07 | Philip Jones
The battle for Keith Richards’ autobiography has turned into the hottest auction of the summer, reports New York Business. Bidding for a book by the Rolling Stones’ famed founding member, co-song writer and rhythm guitarist has reached $7.1m, according to publishing industry sources.
London-based literary agent Ed Victor has been conducting the auction in New York this week, inviting just three houses to offer bids, according to one insider. HarperCollins and Little, Brown, a division of the Hachette Book Group USA, are the ones left vying for the title.
