Listening to the Jar Flies: Growing Up in Wheaton and Rocky Comfort

Listening to the Jar Flies: Growing Up in Wheaton and Rocky Comfort by Jimmy R. Lewis

To the casual visitor, Wheaton and Rocky Comfort, Missouri, are just two tiny towns on the edge of the Ozark hill country. In Listening to the Jar Flies, author Jimmy R. Lewis narrates stories about the extraordinary and colorful characters who lived there between 1907 and 1960.

There's an aging former cowboy who bested Old West legend Tom Horn in a knife fight and a faith-healing preacher who came to town seeking converts on busy Saturdays with a four-foot bull snake slithering around his shoulders. Lewis tells about the one-eyed newspaper editor who sparked a community to build a first-class...

The Pen Is Mightier: The Muckraking Life of Charles Edward Russell

The Pen Is Mightier: The Muckraking Life of Charles Edward Russell by Robert MiraldiCharles Edward Russell was a muckraking journalist who exposed the dark underside of America's class system at the turn of the 20th century.

A Pulitzer Prize winner, author of 27 books, and a founder of the NAACP, Russell has nonetheless faded from public view. In this book, Robert Miraldi restores him to his rightful place in history. Miraldi's biography of Russell sheds light on the Hearst and Pulitzer newspaper...

Drinking the Sea at Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land Under Siege

Drinking the Sea at Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land Under Siege by Amira Hass

In 1993, amira hass, a young Israeli reporter, drove to Gaza to cover a story-and stayed, the first journalist to live in the grim Palestinian enclave so feared and despised by most Israelis that, in the local idiom, "Go to Gaza" is another way to say "Go to hell." Now, in a work of calm power and painful clarity, Hass reflects on what she has seen in Gaza's gutted streets and destitute refugee camps.

Drinking the Sea at Gaza maps the zones of ordinary Palestinian life. From her friends, Hass learns the secrets of slipping across sealed borders and stealing through night streets emptied by curfews....

From 1939 until 1976 she owned and guided the New York Post, the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in the United States. Dolly, as she was called, made the Post one of the most dedicated supporters of New Deal liberalism in the country, while simultaneously maintaining its distinct personality as a chatty, parochial, New York tabloid.

Unfazed by political or personal controversy, Schiff backed editorial writers like James Wechsler...

The Man Who Would Not Shut Up: The Rise of Bill O'Reilly

The Man Who Would Not Shut Up: The Rise of Bill O'Reilly by Marvin Kitman

Fair? Balanced?


To some, Bill O'Reilly is a semi-demented cable TV talk show host who can be an obnoxious, insufferable, opinionated, rude loudmouth whose views, the kinder ones say, are typical right-wing drivel. But there is much more to O'Reilly than what meets eye. O'Reilly is the paradigm of idiosyncrasy in television journalism.


On the rough road to the top, O'Reilly learned how to give the public what it wants and thinks it needs. From his early education at the hands of nuns to an advanced degree in public policy from Harvard, from working at local television stations and rising through...

Play It Again: An Amateur Against the Impossible

Play It Again: An Amateur Against the Impossible by Alan Rusbridger

As editor of the Guardian, one of the world's foremost newspapers, Alan Rusbridger abides by the relentless twenty-four-hour news cycle. But increasingly in midlife, he feels the gravitational pull of music--especially the piano. He sets himself a formidable challenge: to fluently learn


Chopin's magnificent Ballade No. 1 in G minor, arguably one of the most difficult Romantic compositions in the repertory. With pyrotechnic passages that require feats of memory, dexterity, and power, the piece is one that causes alarm even in battle-hardened concert pianists. He gives himself a year.

Shouting Won't Help: Why I - and 50 Million Other Americans - Can't Hear You

Shouting Won't Help: Why I - and 50 Million Other Americans - Can't Hear You by Katherine Bouton

For twenty-two years, Katherine Bouton had a secret that grew harder to keep every day. An editor at The New York Times, at daily editorial meetings she couldn't hear what her colleagues were saying. She had gone profoundly deaf in her left ear; her right was getting worse. As she once put it, she was "the kind of person who might have used an ear trumpet in the nineteenth century."

Audiologists agree that we're experiencing a national epidemic of hearing impairment. At present, 50 million Americans suffer some degree of hearing loss--17 percent of the population. And hearing loss is not exclusively...
