Publishers Marketplace reported that personal improvement powerhouse Deepak Chopra sold the foreign rights of his version of India’s renowned text, Kama Sutra to K.T. Forster at Virgin. Eileen Cope and Robert Gottlieb, two of the fine folks at Trident Media Group, represented Chopra in the deal.
All of which made me think of the golden days of my grad school years when, I shit you not, I was paid to tutor sorority girls on the Kama Sutra. God bless that Masterworks of World Literature class. To this day, I have no idea how the professor who taught this class managed to avoid assassination at the hands of a jealous boyfriend or enraged father. But it still generated a lot of tutoring fees and funny stories for me. And for that, I am thankful.
