Publishing OJ's Book


Today on KMOX, I spoke with Sharlene Martin, the literary agent who arranged the deal to publish OJ Simpson's book "If I Did It" at the behest of the family of Ron Goldman.

I asked her why Fred Goldman wants the book out now (when he tried to block its publication last fall), how many copies she expects to sell, and whether any of OJ's words would be changed. I also asked if she thought the whole project was ghoulish, which it certainly was when OJ was going to profit from it.

Listen.
