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.MoreTo 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 Hearsts 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 MagazineEnjoy a sneaking look back at the days when newspapering was a game as well as a trade, when the world paraded through a newspapers door without security passes, when scoop-hungry city editors not only breathed fire, they inhaled, Schoensteins gem of a memoir brings it all back in a rush of wit and longing.--Columbia Journalism ReviewFather and son literature goes back to the Bible .

. . but I doubt whether there has ever been anything quite like Schoensteins memoir. Certainly nothing as funny, warm, and poignant all at once.--Los Angeles TimesPublishers 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.
