Part Two Of Two Parts

It's a remarkable success story. As a boy Henry Grunwald was driven from his native Vienna by the Nazis. Years later he returned as American ambassador. ONE MAN'S AMERICA captures the essence of the American Dream through the eyes of a man who has lived it - in spades! He started as an immigrant copyboy and rose to become the Editor in Chief of Time magazine. During his long and distinguished career, he interviewed, befriended, and feuded with the most intriguing figures on the world stage -- Whittaker Chambers, Marilyn Monroe, JFK, Henry Kissinger, Fidel Castro, to name a few. Henry Grunwald met them all and made sure that average Americans would meet them, too. This charming, powerful autobiography brings us closer to one of the most influential magazine publishers of our century -- and closer still to the country that welcomed him so long ago.

"An inspiring story, beautifully told." (Walter Cronkite)
