Candid, insightful, and powerful, Daring: My Passages is the story of the unconventional life of a writer who dared to blaze a trail in a "man's world, " becoming one of the groundbreaking writers of New Journalism at New York magazine along with such stellar journalists as Tom Wolfe, Gloria Steinem, and Jimmy Breslin. Sheehy dared to walk New York City's streets with hookers and pimps to expose violent prostitution; to march with civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland as British paratroopers opened fire; to seek out Egypt's President Anwar Sadat when he was targeted for assassination after making peace with Israel; and to break the glass ceiling in a media world fueled by testosterone, killer competition, and grit. Daring: My Passages is also a beguiling love story of Sheehy's tempestuous romance with, and eventual happy marriage to, Clay Felker, the--charismatic founder of New York magazine. Not only was Clay the love of her life, he was also the mentor who nourished her talent and helped her to mold herself into a fearless reporter with the audacity to write piercing character portraits of many twentieth-century leaders--including Hillary Clinton, both Presidents Bush, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev--compelling adventures that Sheehy recalls with wit and detail. Sheehy's previous books have been catalysts for personal growth, while painting indelible portraits of a generation and its concerns. Now the woman who has overcome numerous personal and professional crises is stronger than ever in her life, and speaks from hard-won experience to today's young women. Fascinating and no-holds-barred, her memoir is a testament to guts, resilience, and smarts. Daring offers a bold perspective on all of life's passages.
