Editorial Reviews

Review

“There is great political penetration here, and there are flashes on every page of wit, humanity, and wisdom.” —The New York Times

“One of the most gifted and urbane essayists of the century, a supreme master.” —The Spectator

“[Cooke] made intelligent, honest sense of decades of assassinations, scandals, elections, boom times and broken dreams.” —The Observer

“Cooke has guided listeners through the momentous events and everyday foibles of the United State since President Truman’s time, like a friendly uncle across the pond.” —The Times (London)

“Alistair Cooke is an international treasure.” —Booklist

About the Author

Alistair Cooke, KBE (1908–2004), was a legendary British American journalist, television host, and radio broadcaster. He was born in Lancashire, England, and after graduating from the University of Cambridge, was hired as a journalist for the BBC. He rose to prominence for his London Letter reports, broadcast on NBC Radio in America during the 1930s. Cooke immigrated to the United States in 1937. In 1946, he began a tradition that would last nearly six decades—his Letter from America radio appearances on the BBC. Cooke was also beloved as the host of PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre for twenty-one years. He wrote many books, both collections of his Letters from America and other projects. After his death, the Fulbright Alistair Cooke Award in Journalism was established to support students from the United Kingdom seeking to study in the United States, and vice versa.
