The Write Stuff

The secret to a best seller is getting just the right person as co-writer. Presidential-campaign strategists James Carville and Mary Matalin just snagged writer Peter Knobler (who's worked with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) to help them craft their political chronicle. Other possible subject-writer pairings and the books that might result:

Woody Allen + Robert Fulghum = Everything I Learned in Kindergarten I Still Use in Relationships

Chris Webber + Stephen Hawking = A Brief History of Time-Outs

Boris Yeltsin + Gloria Steinem = Revolution from Within
