Me and The Times: My wild ride from elevator operator to New York Times editor, columnist, and change agent (1967-97)
Robert W. Stock, author
On one level, an intimate, warts-and-all account of the making of The New York Times Sunday package in its pre-Internet heyday, told from the vantage point of an editor, writer, columnist and change agent. On another level, the personal odyssey of a suddenly married Yale freshman with a baby on the way with no job and no prospects. From hia early days as a World War II air raid bicycle messenger…to hia seat at the captain’s table of the S.S. France…to his belated sowing of wild oats at age 45…to his epiphany in a VA hospital…the book offers a fresh perspective on a not-that-long-ago era and industry that were, in so many ways, different from the now.
