Summary
Despotic, tragic, and yet mesmerizing, newspaper editor Charles E. Chapin ruled the evening press in that bygone era when it was the CNN of the pre-electronic world of journalism. For two decades a century ago, Chapin held dominion over New York's wild assortment of tabloids and broadsheets until he murdered his wife in her sleep and his fiefdom was reduced to that of tending roses in one of the nation's most notorious prisons. The Rose Man of Sing Sing traces the rise and fall of this iconic newspaperman, a life so extraordinary that today journalists still recount the myths it generated
Summary
The author tells the extraordinary true story of the legendary newspaper editor who landed in Sing Sing after murdering his wife and became the prison's gardener, transforming fertile ground into rose gardens that rivaled the best in the world. (Biography)
