Unauthorized Biographer Authorizes Interview

Jerry Oppenheimer, author of Front Row: The Cool Life and Hot Times of Anna Wintour, drops in at The Black Table for an interview … that, as far as I can tell, amounts to a two-part sales pitch for his backlist. Still, readers may find some of Oppenheimer’s gossip interesting or shocking (Leftist activists tricked a senile Rock Hudson into outing himself … Barbara Walters’ first love was Roy Cohn … Ethel Kennedy used the N-word regularly…), even if the biggest surprise — for me, at least — was seeing Barbara Walters’ name where Ernest Hemingway’s used to be on the Scribner classics I grew up with.
