Tangled Bylines: A Father and Son Cover the Twentieth Century (Hardcover) - signed by Clyde H. Farnsworth

SKU: 9780826221087s

This memoir of father and son journalists - both named Clyde Farnsworth - draws on the unfinished autobiography of the author's father. Largely biographical, this book can be read as a panoramic history of American newspaper journalism in the twentieth-century, covering Prohibition gangs, prison fires, and botched executions in the 1920s and 1930s, to global war, the shaping of postwar Europe and Asia, and America's emergence from the Cold War. Tangled Bylines includes off-beat encounters with Amelia Earhart, Douglas MacArthur, Charles de Gaulle, Winston Churchill, and Simon Wiesenthal.
