Eric Lasher is a literary agent with LA Literary Agency. He says: “I’ve been a writer, magazine editor, book editor, publisher, and broadcast executive—positions that have enabled me to live in New York, Washington, Berlin, Mallorca, and Los Angeles. After majoring in history at Trinity College, I returned home to New York and my first job — editor at Sport magazine, where I worked with writers such as Jimmy Breslin, Dick Schaap, and Dave Anderson. Next I moved to This Week magazine, the Sunday newspaper supplement that appeared in the nation’s 43 largest cities. I wrote cover stories on President Richard Nixon, Darryl F. Zanuck, Nikita Khrushchev, and Audrey Hepburn. I then joined National Geographic in Washington, D.C. as a writer. Eventually I returned to New York as Senior Editor of general interest books at Prentice Hall. Following that I contracted to write a book on World War II (ultimately made into an HBO movie.) I first moved to Berlin for research, to Mallorca to write, and back to New York. The book was put on hold when I became an Executive on the Corporate Staff of CBS, reporting directly to Dr. Frank Stanton, then the President of CBS. The time with Dr. Stanton as he ran CBS was extraordinary. From the first day, I knew that this was the best job I ever would have. After Dr. Stanton retired, I moved to Los Angeles to be CEO of Nash Publishing, then the largest general book publisher west of Chicago, now merged into extinction.”
