Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power

“By the time he died, in 1911, Pulitzer’s life had gone from American dream to nightmare. If Orson Welles had made Citizen Kane about Pulitzer instead of Hearst, it would have been just as devastating a parable.”

“A century after Pulitzer’s death, the newspaper now promises to join the other great technologies of the Gilded Age—from railroads to coal mining—on the scrap heap of American history.”

Adam Kirsch reviews James McGrath Morris’ biography Pulitzer: A Life of Politics, Print, and Power in No Prize, in Tablet Magazine.
