The Eastern Shore

ebook

A novel about journalism and one man's moral choices, "evoking the rhythms of Ernest Hemingway's early fiction . . . A quietly affecting, mournful achievement" (Richmond Times-Dispatch).

Ned Ayres has never wanted anything but a newspaper career. His defining moment comes early, when Ned is city editor of his hometown paper. One of his beat reporters fields a tip: William Grant, the town haberdasher, married to the bank president's daughter and the father of two children, once served six years in Joliet. The story runs—Ned offers no resistance to his publisher's argument that the public has a right to know.

The consequences, swift and shocking, haunt him throughout a long career—until eventually, as the editor of a major newspaper in post-Kennedy Washington, DC, Ned has reason to return to the question of privacy and its many violations.
