Bay Area Literary agent Andy Ross

I love that Andy Ross is the former owner of Cody's Books in Berkeley, and that I went there when I first moved to San Francisco after college. When The Satanic Verses came out, someone threw a pipe bomb through the window (it didn't explode), and the staff voted unanimously to continue to sell the controversial novel (was there ever a more controversial novel??).

"That was my proudest moment in bookselling," Andy says on his website, andyrossagency.com.

He's was on the show, for the entire hour, Andy talks about what his agency takes on, publishing, Amazon, and more. He was great fun to talk to, and I hope to do it again.
