Book of the Day: Tabloid City by Pete Hamill

by D - Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 10:43am

Pete Hamill is a New York novelist, journalist, editor and screenwriter. He is the author of sixteen previous books including novels Forever and Snow in August, and a memoir A Drinking Life. Tabloid City is both a thriller and gripping portrait of today's New York. The murder of a wealthy socialite and her secretary forces the head of one of the city's last tabloids to stop the presses. But behind the headlines, a decadent playground crumbles in a historic metropolis eclipsed by modern times.

$19.99 Add to Cart

Ezra Levant has won the National Business Book Award for his treatise on Canada's oil industry, Ethical Oil: A Case for Canada's Oil Sands. Levant argues that the oil sands are a more "ethical" option than oil from the Middle East, Africa, or South America because of Canada's stronger environmental regulations, democratic government, press freedoms, and human rights' record. The National Business Book Award panel of judges included Roger Martin, head of the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management, and Peter Mansbridge of the CBC.
