Daisies Don't Lie: Misadventures in Journalism: The Making of a Feminist

Daisies Don't Lie: Misadventures in Journalism: The Making of a Feminist by Nancy Louise LewisSynopsis:

My life in journalism, which began covering a notorious, and until now unsolved murder in Connecticut, led to attempts on my life by cops in two states. You don't have to be black to have cops wanting you dead!

I uncovered newspaper corruption wherever I went during my thirty-year career, and also found corruption and dysfunction in government at all levels. I ended up homeless, first on East Coast streets and later in New Mexico, due to the duplicitous nature of some of the papers I wrote for, which promise truth but give anything but.

Part I details my poisoning at the hands...

Hemingway in Love: His Own Story by A. E. Hotchner

In June of 1961, A.E. Hotchner visited an old friend in the psychiatric ward of St. Mary's Hospital.

Their final conversation was also the final installment in a story whose telling Hemingway had spread over more than a decade.

In characteristically pragmatic terms, Hemingway revealed to Hotchner the details of the affair that destroyed his first marriage: the truth of his romantic life in Paris and how he lost Hadley, the true part of each literary woman he'd later create and...
