Paul Wasserman, Press Agent and Friend

Wayne Robins,, 24 November 2007

PAUL WASSERMAN, the erudite press representative to a long roster of rock and movie stars, died in Los Angeles at age 73, according to an obituary in the New York Times. Wasso, as he was universally known, was an anomaly among PR people, in that he not only used writers to garner ink for his clients: He nurtured writers, and I was one of them.
