Actually, the tagline could include a few more comparisons

There are books that get published on literary merit. There are books that get published on name branding alone. And then there are the ones in between, like this one posted yesterday to Publishers Marketplace:

LA ICM talent agent Margaret Marr’s HOLLYWOOD GIRLS CLUB, the story of the intertwined adventures of four women in the stiletto-wearing, black-card carrying upper echelons of the entertainment industry, “Entourage for women meets Candace Bushnell,” to Shana Drehs at Crown, in a significant deal, for two books, by Andrea Barzvi at ICM (NA).

Sooo, let’s do the tally: we have a fairly freshly minted talent agent working for a major agency who uses someone else in the same agency to sell a book about Hollywood types to the publishing house that will publish a book about fame and fortune in the big city.

I can totally feel my brain cells dying…
