Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This first half of a planned two-part autobiography covers Shirer's leap from Main Street (Iowa) to Paris as a 21-year-old desk man for the Paris edition of the Chicago Tribune. His deskmates included James Thurber and Elliot Paul; his acquaintances ranged from Hemingway to Grant Wood. The book, an absorbing portrait of the times, ends in 1930. Berlin Dairy, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, and his other books were to come later." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
