Charles E. Chapin, the notorious editor tyrant of Joseph Pulitzer's New York Evening World during America's Gilded Age, made headlines himself after murdering his wife of 39 years. The extensively researched biography by Morris (Jailhouse Journalism: The Fourth Estate Behind Bars) reads like a true crime page turner, bringing to life Chapin's tragic story, from his childhood to his days spent cultivating a beautiful rose garden in Sing Sing prison to the last moments of his life. Morris lends the story depth by including colorful depictions of everyday New York life circa the early 1900s, intriguing descriptions of the corrupt practices of editors and reporters, and vivid accounts of major events like the Titanic disaster, a story that Chapin's paper scooped from its competitors. An engrossing read, this is suitable for all libraries.
