An Odd Book and New Website
Hello! I just launched the website for my next book which is coming out April 1, 2017. You can visit http://www.anoddbook
and let me know what you think.
“An Odd Book: How the First Modern Pop Culture Reporter Conquered New York,” is a biography of the life of Oscar Odd McIntyre, the first modern pop culture and entertainment reporter.
In his daily column, “New York Day by Day,” and in national magazines like Cosmopolitan and Life, Odd recorded a time and place undergoing great transition and innovation in communication, politics, art and entertainment. As the country shifted from the Gilded Age to the Progressive Era and through the Great Depression, new technologies and methods of communication were being quickly adopted around the world, as were new ideas regarding journalism and the role of media in American politics and society. Odd, living and writing in New York, was at the epicenter of this new modern age.
If you like era (like I do) you can follow the social media accounts for lots of great content from the 1920s and 1930s.
Happy holidays to everyone.
