Walter Winchell

Michael Herr, Author, Marty Asher, Editor Vintage Books USA $9 (157p) ISBN 978-0-679-73393-5
This biographical fiction portrays American journalist and ideologue Winchell with a style derived from his distinctive tone and bravado. ``The pacing is choppy and impatient, as if deliberation were an indulgence,'' said PW. Winchell's rise to fame is described ``with an unctuous regard for those with power and a mixture of schmaltz and repulsion toward the disenfranchised.'' (Aug.)
