Offering boys exciting non-fiction

The Boston Globe talked with former Houghton Mifflin executives Steven Hill and Peggy Hogan. They have started the Flying Point Press packaging company, which is focusing on narrative nonfiction for boys ages 10 to 15. They began their program by relicensing books from the old Random House Landmark Books line begun in the 50s. They've brought back into print books like Lawrence of Arabia and The Deadly Hunt: The Sinking of the Bismarck and hope to sign originals that will be "the adolescent equivalent of the Krakauer and Junger books."
