About this Item

First Edition. This book was belonged to Harold Hayes, editor in chief of Esquire magazine, and Hayes has written in ink a very interesting note about his relationship with Garry Wills on the front flyleaf: ÒThe early years of Esquire with Garry. He was sent me by Bill Buckley about whom he had written a sketch. He had no reportorial skills. I put him, as an experiment, with Ovid Demaris, who was all reporter (and no writer). Ovid just found Francis Gary Powers for me )nobody else could). They worked together most successfully (and improbably) thorough their earliest pieces.Ó Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a sunned spine. Harold Hayes was editor in chief of Esquire magazine from 1961 to 1973 having been handpicked by the magazineÕs founder, Arnold Gingrich, as his successor. During HayesÕs editorship, the magazine kept pace with the tumultuous sixties with landmark articles, fiction, and essays by the likes of Tom Wolfe, Norman Mailer, Gay Talese, Garry Wills, Michael Herr, William Burroughs, Jean Genet, Terry Southern, etc., and was a major influence on a generation of writers.
