Howell Raines talked about his book The One That Got Away: A Memoir, in conversation with Walter Isaacson on a stage. In his book the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and avid fly fisherman looks back at his life, his career, and his downfall at the New York Times where he was the executive editor until the Jayson Blair scandal. Mr. Raines discussed the two themes from his book, his work as the editor of The New York Times and fishing. He used fishing as a metaphor for how to survive irreversible losses in business and in life. He described his current interest in becoming a novelist and discussed what he sees in the future for newspapers, specifically the future of The New York Times after the Jayson Blair scandal. After the conversation Mr. Raines responded to audience members' questions.

The book was published by Scribner. close
