Mad Men: Grove Press Publishing Roger Sterling's Fictional Memoir
Posted on October 27, 2010
Mad Men is a popular television series from AMC. Roger Sterling, played by John Slatter, is one of the ad men on the series. Sterling has written a memoir that is leaping from the screen into reality.
Grove Press is publishing Roger Sterling's fictional memoir from Mad Men. Sterling's Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man promises quips, barbs, and witticisms from the legendary ad man. Here are some highlights:
- You want to be on some people's minds. Some people's you don't.
- The day you sign a client is the day you start losing them.
- Being with a client is like being in a marriage. Sometimes you get into it for the wrong reasons and eventually they hit you in the face.
- Don't you love the chase? Sometimes it doesn't work out. Those are the stakes. But when it does work out - it's like having that first cigarette. Your head gets all dizzy, your heart pounds, your knees go weak. Remember that? Old business is just old business.
- When a man gets to a point in his life when his name's on the building, he can get an unnatural sense of entitlement.
- Remember, when God closes a door, he opens a dress.
