9780978973612: Dancing Naked with the Rolling Stones: A Life in News and a Good-bye to Booze

Over the fast-paced and fascinating years that Bill McIlwain spent as editor of some of North America's most prestigious newspapers, he met and worked with the great, the petty, the famous, the eccentric. He also confronted his problem with alcoholism. In Dancing Naked with the Rolling Stones, McIlwain tells both sides of the story and how he learned to cope, finding peace and happiness in radical ways. His humble, humorous, thought-provoking account gives readers an intimate glimpse into American newspapering and, at the same time, into his own soul. From the heyday of Harry Guggenheim and Alicia Patterson s groundbreaking Newsday to Boston and Washington insider politics, from the world-changing events of the 1960s and '70s to the Sun Belt suburbs of the 1980s and '90s, Bill McIlwain's tales entertain and inspire.

About the Author :

Bill McIlwain's newspaper career has spanned more than six decades, beginning at age 17 as sports editor for the Morning Star in Wilmington, N.C., where he is now active as a consultant and advisor today. From sports writer and general-assignment reporter in North Carolina, Florida, and Virginia, McIlwain rose through the ranks at New York's renowned Newsday from chief copy editor to managing editor and then editor. His experience in alcoholism rehabilitation in the 1970s led him to write A Farewell to Alcohol, a well-regarded memoir. McIlwain held high-level editorial positions at the Toronto Star, the Record in Bergen County, N.J., the Boston Herald-American, the Washington Star and the Arkansas Gazette. He also helped found and was editor of New York Newsday and later edited the Sarasota Herald Tribune. He retired as senior editor of the New York Times Regional Newspaper Group in 1992 and launched a consulting business, working as a writing coach with reporters and editors.

Review :

Bill Mclwain is one of those rare newspaper editors whose ink-stained wretches were prepared to die for even as he was killing himself with booze. Hard-working and hard-drinking, he fought heroically to save himself from Demon Rum and one newspaper after another from extinction. His tenacious courage won out and this graceful memoir will make you sit up and salute a noble soul even as you lament the passing of an era when newspapers were led by unforgettable editors like him. --Bill Moyers

When you read this book, you'll understand why Bill McIlwain has such an enthusiastic fan club. He has a gift for story-telling that rings of his Southern roots and his journalist soul, and chronicles a life of newspapering that was both gritty and glorious. The lessons he learned along the way are unforgettable. Bill McIlwain is the patron saint of a long line of newspaper people, whose careers he advanced with a characteristic blend of sage encouragement and tough love. . . . The fascinating story of his career bridges the days when everyone read newspapers, to a time when success became a more strategic game. The most compelling theme, though, is his struggle with alcoholism and how he ultimately prevailed. --Diane McFarlin, publisher, Sarasota Herald-Times

Bill Mcilwain looks back on a troubled life with total candor and honesty and succeeds wonderfully in offering readers an inspirational story of his ultimate success in overcoming the internal demons that made him a prisoner of alcohol. His battle with booze is set within a roller-coaster career in journalism that has taken him to the top echelons of many good newspapers. His reminiscences are both entertaining and instructive. As I read the final pages I wanted to stand up and applaud. --Tony Insolia
