Summary
Takes readers inside the life mind of Frank Mankiewicz, a man who was essentially 20th century America incarnate. Born into Hollywood royalty, Frank's father and uncle were responsible for such classic films as Citizen Kane and All About Eve. Growing up in Beverly Hills, guests at the dinner table included F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Marx brothers. At age eighteen Frank joined the Army, seeing action at the Battle of the Bulge. Returning home, he began work for Robert Kennedy's campaign, becoming the Senator's press secretary and a personal friend of the family. During a long career in media and politics Frank helped give birth to National Public Radio and served as a director for the nascent Peace Corps. Such a long and interesting life gave rise to a myriad of opinions, and, before he passed away at 92, Frank was not afraid to share them. In this intriguing, insightful, and often humorous memoir, Frank recalls his favorite memories while sharing his opinions on everything from Zionism to smartphones. Like story-time with the nation's most interesting grandfather, he will make you laugh, make you cry, and probably embarrass you. He wouldn't have wanted it any other way
