Inscribed by the author. Alan Hill spent his entire career with Heinemann, for whom he launched Heinemann Educational Books. Publishers' autobiographies can be rather grim, but this one is different: Hill has a dry sense of humour and his description of a Japanese massage session on pp. 325 - 6, during which he encountered Max Reinhardt of Bodley Head in a hot bath, is a scream: I emerged feeling twenty years younger (but he doesn't say how Max felt). He also makes a telling comparison between Soviet Russian copyright bureaucrats and British publishers' accountants! xiii, 390 pp.
