The title page often shows the title of the work, the person or body responsible for its intellectual content, and the imprint, which contains the name and address of the book's publisher and its date of publication.  Particularly in paperback editions it may contain a shorter title than the cover or lack a descriptive subtitle. Further information about the publication of the book, including its copyright , is frequently printed on the verso of the title page. Also often included there are the ISBN and a " printers key ", also known as the "number line", which indicates the printing status.
This is the hoariest cliché an agent or editor can offer, so you’ll have to forgive me for lacking novelty, but I loved this book in a way that reminded me of why I got into this business. Watching this novel unfold, I felt like Mike Schwartz at that field in Peoria when he first discovered Henry, and I saw something of myself in 22 year old Schwartzy at the end of the novel, too: those who can’t (or can no longer) do, coach; those who love books, but whose appreciation for what it takes to write great ones makes them all the more aware that they’ll never have what it takes—well, we go into publishing. And we hope that we’ll one day have the chance to actually work with books that make us feel like the ones we read back before reading was a job.
