One Mans America : A Journalists Search for the Heart of His Country by Henry Grunwald

A wise, witty, and humane autobiography filled with a passionate curiosity about the people--and meaning--of America.One Mans Americais at once a stirring account of a young immigrant becoming an American, a personal history of the major milestones of the late twentieth century, a fascinating insiders view of the most widely read news magazine in the world, and a warm and loving family saga. Here also is the remarkable success story of a boy driven from his native Vienna by the Nazis and returning years later as an ambassador; of a copy boy who rose to become editor ofTimemagazine. During his long and distinguished career in journalism, Grunwald knew, befriended, and feuded with some of the greatest figures on the world stage, from Whitaker Chambers and Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy and Henry Kissinger to Ronald Reagan and Fidel Castro. But the immense power his position allowed him was tempered by a fierce desire to know everything he could about the mores and folkways of the whole United States, Main Street bankers and student radicals alike, through whom he sought to understand the heart of his adopted country. One Mans Americais, above all, a hymn to the ever-turbulent, ever-changing land of America. From the Trade Paperback edition.
