THE DEEDS OF MY FATHERS How My Grandfather and Father Built New York and Created the Tabloid World of Today

by | Read by Keith Szarabajka

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Pope chronicles his family’s publishing empire, which includes the NATIONAL ENQUIRER, in a candid and unvarnished fashion. The behind-the-headlines tales from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER are especially revelatory and interesting. Narrator Keith Szarabajka's mesmerizing voice captures the tone of this memoir as the author unfolds the achievements of his Italian-American family over two generations. His grandfather's construction firm built some of New York's landmarks and created an influential Italian-language newspaper that helped launch the political career of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The author’s father turned a struggling New York newspaper into the successful NATIONAL ENQUIRER. This is history on a broad American canvas: twentieth-century immigrants, moguls, U.S. presidents, and Mafiosi carrying out the loyalties and betrayals among them that built the city of New York we know today.
