Friends, collaborators, and childhood rivals, Hadden and Luce are not yet twenty-five when they start the nation's first newsmagazine at the outset of the Roaring Twenties. Millionaires at thirty, together they lay the foundation for a media empire. But their partnership is explosive and their rivalry ferocious, inspired by envy as well as love. When Hadden dies at the age of thirty-one, Luce begins to bury the legacy of the giant he was never able to best.
In this groundbreaking biography, Isaiah Wilner offers the first full account of the birth of "Time," He paints a fascinating portrait of a man whose mind dreams of everything, from the weekly newsmagazine to" Life, Sports Illustrated," and the radio quiz show, and he presents a major reappraisal of the most significant media figure of the twentieth century.
The story travels from the tomb of Yale's storied secret society, Skull and Bones, to high-society Europe and South America, following the friendship of two brilliant and opposite souls who inspire one another to the pinnacle of earthly success. The young men emerge from the crucible of the Great War with an idea Hadden's idea that shapes the way Americans will think about the world. By making the news accessible, and amusing readers as it informs them, Hadden's "Time" sets the course for modern journalism into the twenty-first century.
Isaiah Wilner brings to life this remarkable story in "The Man Time Forgot," a book as stylish, passionate, andprovocative as Briton Hadden himself.
