Lary Bloom is widely known editor of memoir and other books. He was, for example, the first editor of two national bestsellers — My Old Man and the Sea, by Daniel Hays and David Hays, and Camera Boy: An Army Journalist’s War in Iraq, by Fred Minnick.
Writer Brian Fay wrote this note after Lary counseled him on his memoir:”Thanks for the manuscript, and all the comments, Lary. But more, thank you for the time and energy you have given to it. But most of all, thank you for the wisdom you shared with me (and in the gentle and warm-hearted manner you delivered it). I look forward to working more with you on it. I’m very, very fortunate to have you as my guide.”
