Description :

Grey paper-covered boards with grey backstrip and silver lettering. Thin line of sunning to both top and bottom edges. From the front endpaper through page eleven, pages show uneven warping, as though the book were splashed with droplets of water. Signed by the author on the title page. An ink notation on the dedication page reads "insouciance p. 35" for no apparent reason, and the word has been circled on page 35. Text is otherwise clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ with $22.95 price shows rubbing to all edges, light general soil, small closed tear at head of front cover. "Her beats have included Vietnam, Hanoi, Israel and Belfast, and the stories she has covered include the heart-wrenching release of POWs at the end of America's longest war, the murky aftermath of Chappaquiddick, the trial of Jean Harris for the murder of Dr. Herman Tarnower, the prosecution of Claus von Bülow, traveling the campaign trail with McCarthy, McGovern and Bush, and much more."

Synopsis :

In this piercing look into the grit and the glamour of television news, award-winning journalist Liz Trotta traces her career from the early days of broadcast news to the slick superficiality of today. The first female television correspondent in Vietnam, Trotta tells the searing truth about being a woman in a male-dominated industry and recounts many of her most fascinating stories, from the scandal of Chappaquiddick to the campaign trail of George Bush. Filled with candid, often stinging assessments of the movers and shakers in the industry, Fighting for Air is the story of an uncompromising woman and of television news coming of age--told from the trenches.
