Steve Almond’s Exploits with Publishers and Self-Publishing

Steve Almond recounts his experience of how rock and roll can save your life, pissing off some of New York’s top literary agents and publishers…oh, and his journey into self-publishing.

“To say that I’ve had a checkered history in publishing would be like saying Elizabeth Taylor had a checkered history in marriage. In the past decade, I’ve churned through three houses, and twice as many editors. I’ve pissed off half the agents in New York City, and told the other half (with unreasonable glee) to fuck off. At one point, I actually had to be physically separated from one of my publishers.”
