Great piece about the writing of Andre Agassi's memoir. My favorite bit, about co-author J.R. Moehringer and the end of his tenure at the L.A. Times:

Mr. Moehringer and his employer, meanwhile, were no longer getting along. “The paper asked me to go out to Palm Springs and write a profile of the world’s oldest chimp, Cheetah from the Tarzan movies,” he recalled, rolling his eyes a little. “I wanted to be a team player, so I went out there, met the chimp and did the piece. I wrote it in the chimp’s voice.”

The editors, he said, leaned on him for rewrite after rewrite of the article, to the point that he thought of quitting. “But my friends talked me out of it,” he went on. “They said I would go down in history as the guy who quit over a chimp story.” There were still more rewrites, but in the end Mr. Moehringer didn’t quit over that. Instead he took a providential buyout and called Mr. Agassi.
