Synopsis:

"To Ralph Schoenstein, his father was the New York version of Superman: 'Not a mild-mannered reporter who put on a cape in a telephone booth, but a commanding editor who could use a telephone booth to get tickets to any sold-out Broadway show.'  Father Paul was city editor of Hearst's New York Journal-American, the U.S.'s biggest evening paper through the '40s and '50s. . . . This affectionate memoir evokes a giant of great animal magnetism. . . a filial, funny book that Superman would have loved--and that anyone might admire."--Time Magazine 

"Enjoy a sneaking look back at the days when newspapering was a game as well as a trade, when the world paraded through a newspaper's door without security passes, when scoop-hungry city editors not only breathed fire, they inhaled, Schoenstein's gem of a memoir brings it all back in a rush of wit and longing."--Columbia Journalism Review

"Father and son literature goes back to the Bible . . . but I doubt whether there has ever been anything quite like Schoenstein's memoir. Certainly nothing as funny, warm, and poignant all at once."--Los Angeles Times

Publisher's Note: This book was previously titled Citizen Paul: The Story of Father and Son, published in 1978 and out of print for many years. It was an Alternate Selection of the Book of the Month Club.
