Killer Book

If you can’t slam a celebrity, the best way to come up with a hot book is true crime. Latest big buck sale came last week when Doubleday won an auction for a family memoir by Michael Gilmore, the brother of Gary Gilmore, whose crimes and execution were documented by Norman Mailer’s “The Executioner’s Song.” Michael is a contributing editor for Rolling Stone. Buzz hears that the book went for a mid-six figure advance.
