ZYZZYVA: The Corporate Autobiography by Howard Junker


DeWitt Henry recommends
ZYZZYVA: The Corporate Autobiography (Fall/ Winter 2000 issue) by Howard Junker: "The autobiography of Junker as a studied original, and the creation of his literary magazine,
ZYZZYVA, as a kind of performance art-at once his chosen business in the world, and his imaginative fulfillment in spite of the world. There is the history of a significant personality and mind, the dark impact of a brother's suicide, a career in freelance writing, marriage and parenting, along with the intellectual history of the editor as a species, from Ford Madox Ford to George Plimpton."
