Hot Deals: It's Not Just Private Ryan Who Was Saved...
Judy Quinn -- 7/27/98
On the heels of other significant six-figure investments for dramatic stories of WWII (the memoir of a Jewish woman married to a Nazi by Rob Weisbach; the discovered diary of a pilot who made a daring escape by Hyperion) comes Doubleday senior editor Bill Thomas's $500,000 preemptive offer to ICM agent Sloan Harris to acquire Hampton Sides's proposed We're All Ghosts Here, the story of a 1945 raid to free Americans from a Japanese POW camp in the Philippines. A writer for such publications as Outside and Sports Illustrated, Sides is also the author of Stomping Grounds, published by Morrow in 1992.
