Book Description

Summary: The Evening News with Walter Cronkite

The Evening News with Walter Cronkite evokes a time, the years 1967-1971, and the shift in ideals and experience through the closely observed eyes of Jack Krivitsky. He goes off to college in 1967 straddling two worlds: the upper middle class Jewish world where he’s grown up privileged on Boston’s North Shore, and is thrust into a convulsing nation where old are pitted against young, rich against poor, women against men and black against white. He travels to college in Iowa in 1967 and then transfers to Georgetown in Washington DC in 1968. In Iowa he explores freedom. In Washington he explores power. Through finely wrought portraits of Iowa and Washington DC of that era and of himself as a lover, as an observer and as a close-up, real time participant in the war protests and the great rallies, he stirringly depicts an American social and political era and reveals the American pastiche in all its violence, emotion and irony.

4.0 out of 5 stars A late 1960's early 1970's masterpiece September 23, 2014
By Kate
When this is good, it is very, very good. When it is poor, it is very very poor. Overall, it is an extraordinary view of the world when it was a far different place than it is today. The views of Washington DC and the comments about historical figures and the real life experiences this guy goes through when he was a young man are painfully truthful and expressed with genius and passion. This has its rough spots, needs a major edit but overall, it is powerful and compelling about a time now in the faraway past but brought to life brilliantly with great language and writer's skill.
