HAMPTONS-TO-H’WOOD PIPELINE LEAKS A BOOK

Warren Phillips seemed destined to forsake the limelight after retiring from his posts as publisher of the Wall Street Journal, chairman and CEO of the Dow Jones Co. and member of the Pulitzer Prize board. He’s joining his wife, Barbara, to start a small publishing imprint, Bridge Works, in Bridgehampton.

Phillips said the galleys have been leaked and film agents and book buyers have come hunting. He finally chose Creative Artists Agency’s Sally Wilcox.
