Area Man Flunks WHOGAS Test: The Michael Betzold Files (Paperback)
Life has been a series of newspaper stories to a boy who pretended to be a journalist and grew up to be an actual reporter, editor, and book author. His seventy-year journey is condensed into the confines of fanciful and outrageous daily exclusives. This whimsical memoir lampoons conventional wisdom with parody, pathos, and some surprising gut punches.
Michael Betzold is a Detroit-based journalist, book author, climate activist, and survivor of the 1960s. He's written everything from movie reviews to unacclaimed novels to investigations of such chicanery as Jack Kavorkian's experiments on the dying, the Catholic Church's complicity in child sexual abuse, and our inadequate and misguided response to the climate catastrophe.Courtroom artist and freelance caricaturist, Jerry Lemenu can make even the most elusive subject come alive.
