Felix Rohatyn is the original deal maker. As an investment banker at Lazard Freres in New York, he became the master of mergers and acquisitions, overseeing Sony’s purchase of Columbia Pictures, General Electric’s buying of NBC. But he is most known for saving New York City from bankruptcy in the 1970s. In his new memoir, Dealings, Rohatyn tells the story of his life, from his family’s escape from Nazi-occupied France in 1940 to his rise as a major wheeler and dealer in the corporate world.
