Mentioning Sinclair Lewis reminds me how he got his big break from two publishers believing in him, is lost in the ultimate breakup of their partnership. Harcourt and Brace were working for Henry Holt, and Lewis talked them into forming their own publishing house in NYC. Without what H. B. and ultimate Jovanovich created, Lewis might not have found his works being published. It was William J. Jovanovich, CEO and Chairman of the Board that made them the multi-billion dollar publisher that I worked for 25 years.
