This book draws on Ray Walters' column "Paperback Talk" which ran in the New York Times Book Review from 1939 to 1984. It provides an invaluable account of how the trade is carried on -- by writers, agents, editors, sales and promotion people, wholesalers, distributors and booksellers -- and readers.
