As cub reporters in the 1920s, John Gunther, H.R. Knickerbocker, Vincent Sheean, and Dorothy Thompson landed exclusive interviews with Hitler, Mussolini, Nehru, and Gandhi, shaping what Americans knew about the world. Subjecting themselves to frank, critical scrutiny, these friends and competitors argued about love, war, sex, and death. Tracing their glamorous yet perilous careers, Deborah Cohen recounts how Gunther achieved lasting success with his memoir Death Be Not Proud, while Sheean's Dorothy and Red used Thompson's fractious relationship with Sinclair Lewis to explore the intricacies of marriage.
