Peter Jennings was the sole anchor of ABC's World News Tonight from 1983 until his death from cancer in 2005. For many Americans, he was the voice and face that gave shape and meaning to every day's news. But who was Peter Jennings really? In this absorbing biography, readers will get to know Jennings through the memories of his friends, family, competitors, colleagues, and interview subjects. Their stories are full of surprises. Jennings, we learn, was a high school dropout who spent the rest of his life in pursuit of knowledge. He traveled the world in search of stories, a notebook perpetually thrust through his back belt loop. In his front pocket, he carried a miniature copy of the Constitution, a testament to his love for the United States; a Canadian by birth, Jennings acquired American citizenship in 2003. Peter Jennings was a celebrity, of course—a dashingly handsome and elegant man, famous for his ability to charm women and world leaders alike—but in these pages he is remembered as a loyal friend and a devoted family man, who loved nothing more than to canoe with his kids and listen to jazz with his friends in the Hamptons. Not that he was the relaxing sort. Jennings was a task-master, who ripped other reporters' pieces to shreds, forcing them to rewrite from the ground up. He was a perfectionist, too, who drove his fellow correspondents crazy with his ad-libbed questions on the air. It was all about standards. Throughout his life, Peter Jennings was driven by a passion to seek the truth and convey that truth accurately, simply, cleanly, and elegantly to his American audience. He was our voice.

Life in New York City in the 1960s had to be lived to be believed. Through clouds of the omnipresent haze of cigarette smoke, business was taken care of, hearts were wooed and broken, and the battle of the sexes was about to begin in earnest. The city’s pulsing rhythms coursed through the veins of the young, vibrant, and hungry twentysomethings who represented the next generation. This was their city. This was their time. These are their stories. Jack Stopple thinks he has a handle on life. A busy fledgling reporter assigned to a somewhat mundane beat, he spends his days lurking in the corridors of power, trying to be patient for what he knows fate has in store. One day, he meets another young professional on the rise, an intriguing young woman who works in public relations. Fascinated, the two former strangers quickly and enthusiastically explore their mutual ambitions. Suffice to say, the record-breaking and life-threatening heat wave isn’t the only sizzling hot phenomenon in the city that summer ... But when a rival emerges on their romantic horizon, what was once a certainty is thrown into chaos. Which ambition will ultimately drive them—love, lust, or the desire for power?

David Carr was an addict for more than twenty years -- first dope, then coke, then finally crack -- before the prospect of losing his newborn twins made him sober up in a bid to win custody from their crack-dealer mother. Once recovered, he found that his recollection of his 'lost' years differed -- sometimes radically -- from that of his family and friends. The night, for example, his best friend pulled a gun on him. 'No,' said the friend (to David's horror, as a lifelong pacifist), 'It was you that had the gun.' Using all his skills as an investigative reporter, he set out to research his own life, interviewing everyone from his parents and his ex-partners to the policemen who arrested him, the doctors who treated him and the lawyers who fought to prove he was fit to have custody of his kids. Unflinchingly honest and beautifully written, the result is both a shocking account of the depths of addiction and a fascinating examination of how -- and why -- our memories deceive us. As David says, we remember the stories we can live with, not the ones that happened.
