ICM Partners’ Esther  Newberg Discusses Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones”

As the co-head of ICM Partners’ publishing department, Esther Newberg is a literary force through and through, playing an instrumental role in landing titles for the likes of Bob Iger, Tom Hanks, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the past three years alone.
