Shenanigans: A Memoir
Had James Thurber been born a nice Jewish girl from Bridgeport, Connecticut, he might have grown up to be Abby Kenigsberg. Kenigsberg’s world, like Thurber’s, is one where the ordinary is never more than a few steps from the oddball. This is a lively and funny memoir about an outwardly conventional life that has been far from ordinary. Shenanigans is a social history of one woman’s journey through our times, from Kennedy-era Wellesley College to the pressure-cooker news industry in Manhattan.
– David Guarino, Former Texas Capitol Correspondent, San Antonio Express-News
SHENANIGANS is the story of a woman who became a successful media watchdog and a more sympathetic wife, mother, and daughter. Always surrounded by witty and strong-minded people, especially her force-of-nature husband, Kenigsberg more than held her own. She pursued a serious career as a media critic and professor having earned respect from New York media. Kenigsberg delivers irreverent descriptions of college professors, corporate bigwigs and never-before-revealed encounters with Dan Rather, Leslie Stahl, Mike Wallace, and Alan King.
