My Paper Chase

Friday, January 01, 2010

Sir Harold Evans recounts the tale of his life as a newspaperman, from his very first job, to becoming editor of the Sunday Times and The Times of London, and then his move into book publishing, becoming president and publisher of Random House. In My Paper Chase: True Stories of Vanished Times he discusses his crusading reporting style, his belief that journalism should improve the lives of those less fortunate, and his feuds with politicians, government, the court, and Rupert Murdoch.
