That was a good review Susanna.

Great review! Reminded me that I have a copy of Joyce Milton's "The Yellow Kids" I've been meaning to read. . .. . .
What's that about?

It's about the "yellow journalism" newspaper wars between Wm Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. I had a hardcover copy that I misplaced when moving -- it's around here somewhere -- and then it popped up as a Kindle freebie. Since the Kindlel edition didn't take up any space, I grabbed it Yeah, I grab a lot of that stuff. . . . .

So the book is about the penny newspapers and not the hoaxes? (either way it sounds good, just clarifying for myself)
It's about both. And Poe and P.T. Barnum as well, to a lesser extent.
