ST. LOUIS - Shares of Pulitzer Inc., owner of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and 78 other newspapers, rose more than 17 percent after the company said it's considering a sale. The company may sell for as much as $1.5 billion, and Gannett Co., the largest U.S. newspaper publisher, could be a leading candidate to buy it, said Barry L. Lucas, an analyst with Gabelli & Co., which owns Gannett shares. Pulitzer's 14 daily and 65 weekly newspapers are located primarily in mid-size and small U.S. cities such as Bloomington, Ill., and Provo, Utah, which makes the company attractive to a range of suitors, said Lucas.

Pulitzer: A Life, by Denis Brian. John Wiley & Sons. 438 pages. $30. Joseph Pulitzer translated pluck, luck and sweat into the classic American success story. As a penniless 18-year-old Hungarian, he jumped ship into Boston Harbor to ensure that he, not the man who recruited him in Europe, got his Union army enlistment bonus. In short order, he became a lawyer, a Missouri state senator and a newspaper owner. Having succeeded as a publisher in St. Louis, he combined his work ethic, ingenuity and brain power to transform The World in New York City into a powerful metropolitan daily.

"Newsies" is a live-action musical, but it's only barely alive. Call it "Snoozies."How good an idea was this, anyhow? "Hey, kids, let's put on a musical about a strike." What is it, "Pajama Game" for the Li'l Rascals? Actually it is based on an authentic event, the strike by newspaper boys against New York press lords Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst back in 1899. But the "1899" of "Newsies" is that old familiar place, the quaint and gentrified past so beloved of the Disney sensibility, where everything has been artificially aged until it has that tasty theme-park look, as if it's set in the fabled New York borough of Orlando.

THE FELLOW at my front door seems to materialize out of nowhere, like Rod Serling at the end of some unearthly Twilight Zone episode. And why not? I went to sleep in the city of Baltimore, and seem to have awakened in Nome."
