"Winchell: Gossip, Power and the Culture of Celebrity," by...

I'm Reading . . .

January 07, 1996

"Winchell: Gossip, Power and the Culture of Celebrity," by Neal Gabler. It's brand new and a great book. It puts you on Broadway in the 1920s, the end of Vaudeville and yellow journalism. I've been reading biographies lately. I read both the Brandos, the first by Manso and then his version and Shirley Maclaine's.
