So far this is only true in our minds. But with Judith Regan emerging from Remi on 53rd Street this afternoon, her highlights all ablaze, there's no way we couldn't think that some deal like this is in the works:
Today, former Star Editor in Chief Joe Dolce and former ReganBooks Editor in Chief Judith Regan announced the formation of their literary agency, Free Agents. The agency will provide "a voice for the voiceless," according to Regan: the kind of criminals and D-listers that dirty lit-man David Vigliano is actually too skeeved by. "I made the decision to represent these books, and to sit face to face with killers, because I wanted them, and the men who broke my heart and your hearts, to tell the truth, to confess their sins, to do penance and to amend their lives. Amen," Regan said. Dolce said that they are currently looking for staffers to fill a few more positions at the nascent agency. "We're talking to Lloyd Grove, but I think something Judy said in the interview about "biting his dick off" might have thrown him," Dolce said.
