In My Paper Chase, Harold Evans recounts the wild and
wonderful tale of newspapering life. His story stretches
from the 1930s to his service in WWII, through towns big and
off the map. He discusses his passion for the crusading
style of reportage he championed, his clashes with Rupert
Murdoch, and his struggle to use journalism to better the
lives of those less fortunate. There's a star-studded cast
and a tremendously vivid sense of what once was: the lead
type, the smell of the presses, eccentrics throughout, and
angry editors screaming over the intercoms. My Paper Chase
tells the story of Evans's great loves: newspapers and Tina
Brown, the bright, young journalist who became his wife. In
an age when newspapers everywhere are under threat, My Paper
Chase is not just a glorious recounting of an amazing life,
but a nostalgic journey in black and white.
