Andre Bernard's witty collection of rejections has just been reissued by the publisher, so now you can buy the book for yourself or look at the excerpts on our site. Lust for Life by Irving Stone was described by one publisher as ‘A long, dull novel about an artist.’ It was rejected 16 times, but found a publisher and went on to sell about 25 million copies.
