5.0 out of 5 stars A superbly presented biography of an influential American 12 Sept. 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Frank Brady's The Publisher is the life story of Paul Block who was a newspaper mogul, advertising executive, and political apologist. The core of this comprehensive and meticulous biography is Block's involvement in the history of newspaper publishing and national advertising -- and his influence on the politics of his day which spanned the Gay Nineties, the Jazz age, and the years of the Great Depression. Biographer Frank Brady places Bock within the vivid and dramatic settings of his time as he re-creates the story of Block as a friend, advisor, or opponent of such men as Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Alfred E. Smith, Jimmy Walker, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Here also is the personal side of Paul Block's childhood as the son of an immigrant ragpicker who eventually came to live in an opulent suite at the Waldorf Towers and a mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Publisher is a superbly presented biography of an influential American who lived through "interesting times".
