Editorial Reviews

Legendary gossip columnist Liz Smith describes Cathleen Black, former chairman of Hearst Magazines, as a "sexy, accomplished, attractive, and divinely inspired titan" in her introduction to this often humorous, in-depth conversation recorded in front of a live audience, on November 2007, in New York City.

Liz Smith's trademark wit propels this compelling discussion of Black's storied career, from her early days as a neophyte working for the eccentric Al Neuharth to her ascension to the top of one of the biggest publishing companies in the world.

Black's eloquence, along with Smith's clever sensibility, makes for a highly satisfying listen.
