Dark Harbor: Slashed Throats and Bullets

A break from the Paris blogs for a little bit...I've been feeling the love from Publishing Perspectives lately, an international online trade publication about the publishing world. My old friend Nathan Ward, who hails from my American Heritage days, has just published his first book and here is the Q & A I did with him. Dark Harbor tells the story of Mike Johnson, a scrappy reporter who told the story of union muckrakers, and the hit men who dumped them in the rivers, in a 24-part tabloid series that garnered him a Pulitzer Prize. Budd Schulburg eventually co-opted the sordid tale for "On the Waterfront"...
