A Book on Stassen May Put Rockefeller Back in Book Business
Bv Art Buchwald
WASHINGTON — “Gov. Rockefeller, there s a man out side and he says he has a book he’d like you to publish."
"I can’t see anyone right now.”
“He’s been here three days and says he won t leave.”
“All right, send him in.”
“Mr. Rockefeller, my names Casky, and I’d like to do a biography of Harold Stassen I thought you might publish it.”
“I’m not in publishing any more. I lost a bundle on the Arthur Goldberg book ”
“But Mr. Rockefeller, this is better than a Goldberg biography. Harold Stassen is one of the greatest men in the country.
Everyone wants to read about him. You could sell a hundred thousand copies with your eyes closed.”
“That’s what they told me about the Goldberg book. They promised me that the Book-of-the-Month club would take anything about a former justice of the supreme court So I called up my brother, Laurence, and told him we were onto a good thing and asked him to go in on it
with me. Now I^aurance is sore. He hates to lose money in a
business deal.”In The Black
“But Mr. Rockefeller, you can't just quit publishing because you had one flop. My book could put your company in the black.”
“I don’t know. Ifs not easy for a Rockefeller to have an investment that goes sour. We thought we had a sure thing with Goldberg. After all, he was a labor lawyer, a supreme court justice and an ambassador to the United Nations. You would have thought people would break down the bookstore doors to buy the book.”
“But my book has more excitement than Goldberg’s. Harold Stassen is a legend in America He was governor of Minnesota, president of a university and a presidential candidate four times.”
“Well. FII ask my brother . ance . . . Laurence, Nelson here my office that wants to write a Don’t hang up on me, Laurence!
. . Miss Jones, get me Laur-. . . Listen. I have a fellow in IxMik on Harold Stassen . . .Sex Appeal
“I know you lost your shirt on the Goldberg book, but this seems to have more potential . . . Stassen has a lot more sex appeal than Goldberg . . . Please Laurence, this could be our big break We could become rich You will do it? Thanks a lot, I .aura nee . . . Believe me, you won t bi* sorry Goodbye.
“Okay, Mr. I^asky, you tan go ahead with the project How much of an advance do you want‘>”
“Ten thousand dollars.”
“All right, now this is what I want you to do. Go to a telephone binith on Third avenue and Fifty-ninth at three o’clock tomorrow afternoon A man will pick you up and take you to Grand Central station and give you a key to a locker In the locker you will find the name of a lawyer in Los Angeles You re to fly out to L.A., and this lawyer will give you a cheek on a bank in St Louis. You can fly to St Urns aud cash the check.”
“Why can’t you just give me a check now?”
"What? And have the public know the Rockefellers are back in the publishing business?” »
