Novel Idea from Michael Hastings
We'd forgotten that the writer's widow found a manuscript of a novel he'd written after he died and now soon to be published by a small press.

It's based on his early days in magazines, before Iraq and Afghanistan. Brad Pitt still set to star in movie "The Operators" based on that latter part of his saga.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
