Despite leaving no bribe unpaid, if anything CITY FOR SALE came out too soon, publishing during Koch's third term as New York City mayor. I don't know if a later paperback edition may include the missing wrap-up, but Koch's failure to even win the Democratic nomination for what would have been his fourth term would make for a more fitting finish.
How did H.B.O. overlook CITY FOR SALE?
I notice the CITY FOR SALE book cover image on this web site depicts a photo change. The original CITY FOR SALE cover has a picture of fallen idol Bess Myerson directly above the authors' names but the version here replaces Myerson with Rudy Giuliani. Speaking of photography, CITY FOR SALE's pictures section includes a dandy candid shot of journalist Jimmy Breslin.
"Today's reformer is tomorrow's hack," said Brooklyn boss Meade Esposito. Read CITY FOR SALE: ED KOCH AND THE BETRAYAL OF NEW YORK.
