Book Trailer

The second half of the 20th century was the heyday of print journalism and Jack Schwartz witnessed it from a front-row seat: he worked at five of the seven dailies that bestrode New York in that era.

In his book, “The Fine Print : My Life as a Deskman,” he offers an insider’s view of what actually happens in newsrooms and tells stories of people who made the papers possible _ and sometimes impossible. Listen to him explain what a deskman is, and narrate, with his inimitable sense of humor, wry and feisty recollections from a time that is all but lost. “The Fine Print” is available at Amazon’s CreateSpace through the following link: The Fine Print: My Life as a Deskman
