About this title

Synopsis:

A wise, witty, and humane autobiography filled with a passionate curiosity about the people--and meaning--of America. One Man's America is 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 insider's 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 of Time magazine.

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 Man's America is, above all, a hymn to the ever-turbulent, ever-changing land of America.

Review:

Henry Grunwald worked his way from copy boy at Time magazine in the 1940s to editor in chief of the entire publishing empire of Time Inc., before retiring in 1987. In this moving memoir, Grunwald tells of his Jewish family's flight from Nazi Austria, his new life and schooling in America, and his eventual rise to dizzying heights in the publishing industry. Along the way, Grunwald lets slip some telling asides about the literati he knew in the media world and the political and cultural movers and shakers he kept company with, as well as his personal opinions about the direction of American life in the years since World War II. One Man's America is a terrific insider's view of the magazine and newspaper business in its hey-day and a memorable memoir by a thoughtful man.
