Today’s Read It Forward Moment comes from Molly Stern, publisher, Crown Publishers and Broadway Books as well as David Benioff.
“I love this book, it’s brilliant, amazing,” says Molly about David Benioff’s City of Thieves. “The funny thing about this book: it was given to me originally on a single piece of paper. I was an editor at Viking, and I was working with David – who’s a friend and a brilliant writer – and when he gave me this piece of paper, I was skeptical about what it would become and how it would become a great novel.
But in fact it did. And that novel is City of Thieves. From one piece of paper, a manuscript came in six years later, and I was very proud of the work with David. I can’t encourage you enough to read this book. I gave it to my friends – and I have many people say to me that they pass it on to everyone they know.”
