“Sticky Fingers” ($29.95)
Journalist and author Joe Hagan spent four years chronicling the life of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, but now that “Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine” is out, Wenner claims it's “deeply flawed and tawdry.” That denouncement will likely make people even more curious to pick up the book.
