Sure, the marketing monster that is Harry Potter owes its existence to J.K. Rowling, but its success can also be attributed to her literary agent, Christopher Little:
Perhaps the luckiest literary agent ever.
Throughout the canny construction of 'Brand Potter' - books, films, video games, and now even stamps - one figure has been ever present, like a shadow glimpsed in the cloisters of Hogwarts school.
This enigmatic but utterly crucial influence is Christopher Little, literary agent, fierce protector of Rowling and, thanks to the boy wizard, now a millionaire many times over.
on another note - i thought the new harry potter movie was awesome. thoroughly enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
i didnt read the book though, so, dunno what book fans think about it.
I thought the movie was better than the book. The book was the worst in the series, in my opinion. Whiny teenage angst? No thanks. They cut out most of the whining in the movie so that was a relief.ReplyDelete
