The Hell with Politics: The Life and Writings of Jane Wood Reno

The Hell with Politics: The Life and Writings of Jane Wood Reno

by George Hurchalla

Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
Before she was known as Janet Reno's mother, Jane Reno was one of Florida's most noteworthy citizens. Labeled a wunderkind after an early IQ test, Jane Wood Reno went on to make her mark as a journalist and social worker, among other pursuits. Editor George Hurchalla has gathered together Reno's collected writings and included a short biography of his aunt. A gifted storyteller, Reno wrote about unusual people motivated by their own particular passions. She also chronicled Florida's colorful history, and her own exploits included an underwater interview with a diver who was attempting to set a world record. But after reading this book, what comes through most clearly is not only Reno's enormous appetite for living, but also her love for the large extended family that provided a buoyant support system for the exceptional and unconventional life she led.
