Double Vision: Reflections On My Heritage, Life, and Profession Reviews
Ben Bagdikian deserves his moment in the sun, for being a character in The Post (which is not a great date movie TBH) and for his defense of and criticisms of journalism.This book is a personal memoir and a professional one - the two are interwoven and the personal feeds into the professional.

And the familial aftermath of the Armenian genocide of 1920 is powerful.Also, he's a pretty funny writer!
