The article presents information on the book "A Perfect Divorce," by Avery Corman. Though the book is fiction, the promotion of the title is more like that of a nonfiction title due to its subject and Corman's authority on the issue. Corman's agent, Mort Janklow of Janklow & Nesbit approached St. Martin's Press to publish "A Perfect Divorce," which hit stores last month with a first printing of 25,000. Other recent books on divorce include Sam Margulies' "Man's Guide to a Civilized Divorce," published by Rodale and "The Truth About Children and Divorce," by Robert Emery.
