Pulitzer was a rags to riches story who revolutionized the newspaper industry by introducing sensationalism and shaking the ground of American politics by demanding changes to stop the rich from exploiting the poor. Crimmins' novel brings us into the day to day life of this unique genius, who arrived in America as an immigrant who barely spoke English yet twenty years later developed and edited two of the biggest newspapers in the nation. Pulitzer's run-ins with the other newspaper titans of the Gilded Age show us the men who laid the foundations of American journalism, and his confrontations with the wealthy robber barons brings us into the drama of how Pulitzer began a surge for reform that was so very important to improve the quality of American life. Pulitzer's wife tries desperately to comfort the man whom she deeply loves, yet their romance is shattered by how Pulitzer's workaholic Napoleonic ambitions came to cause him a terrible breakdown, causing this newspaper widow further to the sidelines in this captivating drama of American life. Crimmins' dramatic novel brings us into fundamental elements at the heart of American society, describing the life of a man who fought essential political battles that changed life as we know it in the United States.

 Excerpt

  Pulitzer, a cub newspaper reporter, was walking down Main Street of St. Louis, on his way to a meeting of reporters at a saloon. His stroll, it is safe to say, was not pleasant. Other reporters were following him and,

as they liked to do, were making fun of him, for he was a fairly recent Jewish looking immigrant with a strong Hungarian accent.

      “That’s Jewseph Pulitzer,” said one.

      “You mean Joey the Jew,” said another.

      “Naw, he’s Pull It Sir,” said yet another, sarcastically pulling at his nose.

      Pulitzer forged onward, trying to keep his temper down amidst the cascade of anti-Semitic insults. He was six feet four inches tall and very skinny, with thick glasses perched at the end of a long nose. He would not be a formidable adversary in a fist fight.

      “Hey Joey, your mother says it’s time for bed.”

      “His English isn’t very good.”

      “It’s time to go back to Germany, Joseph.”

      Joseph, mounting the steps to the dining room of the establishment, returned fire.

      “I’m from Hungary, you idiot!”

      “He says he’s hungry.”

      “Mommy must not have given him dinner.”
