Each time I am in France I buy the International Herald Tribune (the Int'l NY Times as of last year), knowing that for the past few decades it has essentially been New York Times contributors. I knew nothing however of its very interesting history, so I was interested to learn in Goldsborough's book that back in the 60's the NY Times had its own Paris edition and was actually a direct competitor of the Paris Herald. I loved reading about what Paris was like in the 60's before I was born, when it was turbulent times both for the Paris Herald and de Gaulle's government. Not to rehash the history presented in the book which is well documented in other reviews, I enjoyed learning about the intrigue and back-room dealings between the publishers of 3 of the top US papers vying for ownership of the Paris Herald after the New York Herald's demise, as well as the French government's involvement. Who knew? I had a bit of trouble in the first chapters with the vast number of characters and getting straight who did what (or more like who did what to whom as a lot of the inter-office interactions had to do with affairs). I much preferred once Goldsborough finally got down to the nitty gritty of the actual wheelings and dealings involved in keeping the Paris Herald alive in Paris during those heady days. The book is well written, with quick dialogue and witty banter. I did wish throughout the book that I had been given an actual physical description of Rupert, the protagonist (is Goldsborough he?); it felt a tad odd to not be able to picture your main character physically. Aside from these small niggles I thoroughly enjoyed the read and the history lesson, and once Goldsborough really started turning the wheels on his story, I couldn't put it down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Paris Herald - catnip for journalism or Paris junkies 26 juillet 2014
Par John Pearce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
For me, The Paris Herald (*****) was like a thrilling ride in a time machine. It covers in detail the desperate time in the late 60s when the New York Herald Tribune failed, threatening its Paris satellite with extinction or (even worse in the eyes of the ink-stained wretches who worked there), a takeover by The New York Times. That eventually happened, but not until much later, after Katharine Graham’s decision to take a minority position for The Washington Post blocked the Times from gaining effective control.
This novel is catnip for the Paris or journalism junkie. James O. Goldsborough chose to relate a mostly true story as a novel, which of course gave him greater freedom of choice in his characters and the precision with which he deploys them. For what it’s worth, my memory matches up pretty well with his story.
Goldsborough, a talented journalist who was the paper’s most visible and interesting reporter during the time he recounts, explains well the tense period when the newspaper’s continued existence hung in the balance. But in addition to the business story, his sharp vignettes of the editors and managers, their wives and their mistresses (generally their secretaries; this was the time of Mad Men, after all) illuminate the old stories we’ve all read about being an American in Paris after the war.
I wrote for the International Herald Tribune in the early 70s, just after the period he describes, but as a special correspondent in matters economic in the German-speaking world, so my view is filtered by the limited personal contact I had with the editors in Paris. I remember with special fondness the editor, Buddy Weiss (here transformed into Sonny Stein) and his friendly but splendidly ugly dog Baron, who had his own place at the table when we went to lunch at the hotel across the street. Baron, alas, didn’t make it into the book.
As Goldsborough portrays it, the staff of the IHT was sixties American journalism boiled down. Barely twenty years after the end of the war, the American presence in all of Europe was still immense and the IHT was a must-read for the entire American business and diplomatic establishment, as well as many French business and government leaders, most of whom were comfortable in English. In France, De Gaulle reigned until 1969, after the famous demonstrations and strikes of May 1968, when he lost an insignificant referendum and resigned — but not until he’d pared back French cooperation with the American military very substantially.
Every American who went to Paris bought the Herald at one of the green newspaper kiosks of the time and took it away to read, whether in a park or a café. It’s hard to say whether it commanded the same respect it did between the wars — as Goldsborough writes in his Author’s Note, “Any American traveling in Paris in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century came across the Paris Herald at one time or another. It was available in the same kiosks on the Champs Elysées and quais along the Seine as the latest article in l’Aurore by Zola…. The Paris Herald … belonged to Paris as much as did Zola or Proust.”
Big changes came to the newspaper after the epoch Goldsborough recounts. In 1970 it was still printed on heavy old rotary presses in the basement of its seedy building on the Rue de Berri, a few steps off the Champs-Elysées. Goldsborough intelligently dissects the many difficulties it had with its communist printers’ union. Partly as a way to escape the union, it considered relocating to Zurich or somewhere else more orderly (I know from personal experience that it considered moving much of its printing to Frankfurt, where I lived), but ultimately decided to relocate to the ritzy suburb of Neuilly and switch to more modern printing technology. The union was pensioned off and the paper moved into a new age.
Now, of course, it’s truly international, printed in many locations from London to Hong Kong.

As a journalism insider, I was expecting more insider journalism in this book. There's a lot about top-level newspaper politics, but not a lot about what goes on at the desks. The ordinary blokes are portrayed around their sex lives, not around their careers. There was a lot of sex, to be sure, but journalists were were mostly wrapped up in printer's ink when the Paris Herald reigned in Europe. I thought these characters could have been working in a brioche bakery.

This is a near perfect historical novel about the International Paris Herald Tribune, and is a wonderful read for anybody who has travelled to Europe and wanted to read a newspaper in English. All the major figures of the time are in this novel, and it makes for a compelling and exciting story.

I enjoyed seeing the story develop through the eyes of the different characters, all of whom were well drawn. I think it would have been better with a little less bed hopping and boozing and a little more newsroom and press room atmosphere, but that's a personal reaction. Overall, a very good read.

This is the best read in a long time. Goldsborough writes seemingly effortlessly. He loves his subject and the characters he has created. And so did I.
