Inhaltsangabe

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2018.

A Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year.

"Reporter is just wonderful. Truly a great life, and what shines out of the book, amid the low cunning and tireless legwork, is Hersh's warmth and humanity. This book is essential reading for every journalist and aspiring journalist the world over." (John le Carre)

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning, best-selling author and preeminent investigative journalist of our time - a heartfelt, hugely revealing memoir of a decades-long career breaking some of the most impactful stories of the last half century, from Washington to Vietnam to the Middle East. 

Seymour Hersh's fearless reporting has earned him fame, front-page bylines in virtually every major newspaper in the free world, honors galore, and no small amount of controversy. Now in this memoir he describes what drove him and how he worked as an independent outsider, even at the nation's most prestigious publications. He tells the stories behind the stories - riveting in their own right - as he chases leads, cultivates sources, and grapples with the weight of what he uncovers, daring to challenge official narratives handed down from the powers that be. 

In telling these stories, Hersh divulges previously unreported information about some of his biggest scoops, including the My Lai massacre and the horrors at Abu Ghraib. There are also illuminating recollections of some of the giants of American politics and journalism: Ben Bradlee, A. M. Rosenthal, David Remnick, and Henry Kissinger among them. This is essential listening on the power of the printed word at a time when good journalism is under fire as never before.

Kritikerstimmen

“What a story. What a life. It’s hard to read this book without a tinge of envy and a lot of admiration.” (Charles Glass, Times Literary Supplement)

“A master class in the craft of reporting." (Alan Rusbridger, The New York Times Book Review)

“Reporter is a miracle.... The stories brim with humor, wit, poignancy, pointillist portraits of brilliant color - above all, [Hersh's] own voice.” (Andrew Meier, Bookforum)
