Andrew Wylie - WSJ.com
MAY 27, 2011 | WSJ Magazine | by Daniel Gross. Profile of old
school literary agent Andrew Wylie, of the Wylie Agency and Odyssey
Editions (distributes electronic versions of books he represents through
Amazon.com)....Wylie remains a rare optimist in publishing circles,
fueled perhaps by the healthy backlists and literary estates he
represents. Information technology may be upending business models, but
he believes the global interconnection these advancements permit
provides immense opportunities for his authors....The devaluation of
quality editing and writing is sad and it's inevitable. Each house has a
large number of titles to publish, and with a difficult economy, fewer
people to handle the publications. But publishers need to become
smaller, leaner, and they will have to learn new disciplines. The whole
one-year publication process must be reduced.

Why boardrooms are not all rock 'n' roll
Nov 1, 2010|FT|Philip Broughton.Managing creative people is
difficult,not just because creativity is rare and the people who possess
it chafe at being managed but because establishing a mkt for creative
work is one of the hardest things to do in business.VCs know this when
they install seasoned executives to guide young founders (e.g.Eric
Schmidt @ Google & Sheryl Sandberg @ Facebook).Similarly, Hollywood
often pairs a hard-headed business type with a creative genius.Steven
Spielberg's career took off under the guidance of Sid Sheinberg, a
fierce lawyer who ran MCA/ Universal.Book publishing's best-known agent,
Andrew Wylie, is nicknamed "the Jackal" for his tenacity on behalf of
clients...The Stones required 3 very different kinds of manager:(1) to
validate them within a highly competitive industry & establish them
in the public eye;(2)to usher them into the big time; and (3) to build a
protective fort around their steady-state operations & ensure their
L.T. survival & profitability.
