Adventures in the Scribblers Trade: The Most Fun You Can Have
Neil Hickey, author
Adventures in the Scribblers Trade comes in two parts: People and Events. Both derive from my 50 years + as a journalist in newspapers and magazines. I'm currently adjunct associate professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. The People section of the book describe my personal experiences and friendships with about 30 major personalities, most of them legends: Vladimir Nabokov, Laurence Olivier, James T. Farrell, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Kurt Vonnegut, Bobby Fisher, Lauren Bacall, Johnny Carson, Johnny Carson, and others. The Event section narrates my first-hand reporting from Vietnam, the war in Kuwait, the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Northern Ireland, the Baltics, and elsewhere.
