About

Harvey Fierstein said “accept not one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” However I think Peter Wilmoth did a great job when he published his piece in the Age so I’m borrowing it.

“Harrison Young, 69, was born in Pittsburg, studied at Harvard University and worked on the Washington Post where Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein broke the Watergate scandal. Young was conscripted into the US army, served in Vietnam and then began a career in banking. He is non-executive director of the Commonwealth Bank, an executive-in-residence at the University of Melbourne’s Department of Finance and has written a book of “erotic” stories called Partners.”

That was the first. Since then I have also published Submission and Nantucket.

Here I share what I am thinking on everything from leadership and corporate culture to stories, sex and why bankers should write poetry.

I hope you enjoy.

    My wife and I both read straight through, held interest throughout. Questions:

    1. This is structured like a play or screenplay. Have you considered?

    2. Anyone checking your bio could see you were in the same class at the WGU as Bill Weld. Have you gotten any blowback from your portrayal of the “Governor” in this book?
