Account of the problem faced by Jason Epstein of Random House in editing Picasso books by Mailer and the authorized biographer, John Richardson. Mailer said, “I offered to move publishers for one book,” which he did, solving the problem. Richardson called Mailer’s books a “scissors-and-paste job.” See 93.5.
