This could very well be my favorite day to work in publishing. Knopf is publishing Andre Agassi’s memoir! It’s been a long journey from the days when his posters decorated my teenaged bedroom, but my respect and admiration (with the tiniest of crushes, of course) for this sports icon never waivered. Let the countdown to November begin!
