Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Cooke] has the great journalist’s gift of reducing the bewildering diversity of personality to an identity, of selecting the significant and rejecting the trivial.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A rare delight . . . [Cooke] has the priceless gift of the gods, irresistible readability.” —The Spectator

“The journalist’s memoir par excellence.” —Newsweek

“The quintessential Alistair Cooke.” —The Economist

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.
