About the Author:

Susan E. Tifft and Alex S. Jones are the authors of The Patriarch: The Rise and Fall of the Bingham Dynasty. Ms. Tifft is a former associate editor of Time magazine; Mr. Jones covered the press from 1983 to 1992 for The New York Times, where he won a Pulitzer Prize. The authors, who are married, share the Eugene C. Patterson Chair in Communications and Journalism at Duke University and live in New York City.

Review:

"Brilliantly reported." -- Entertainment Weekly

"The Patriarch should stand up as the definitive text on the matter. . . . A compelling yarn." -- The Boston Globe

"The subject of The Patriarch is of such compelling interest, the authors' style so elegant, and the story such an incredible combination of modern cupidity and tragedy that I now lay it aside realizing that it is not 'aside.' It had reached inside with the truths of a good novel, enlarging my perception of the ways by which human beings deceive each other and, even worse, themselves." -- The Knoxville News-Sentinel

"This is the best Bingham book: It makes sense of how the family's media empire unraveled." -- BusinessWeek

"This spacious, richly embroidered chronicle . . . depicts with the sweep of a medieval tapestry five generations of family history. . . .The authors recount this complex, very human saga fully and fairly." -- The New York Times

"Through prodigious research, Tifft and Jones have written the best kind of family history-one so packed with archival fact and telling anecdotes that a reader can be excused for believing at times he or she understands the Binghams far better than they seem to have understood themselves." -- Los Angeles Times
