Veteran reporter Jeff Kunerth culls four decades of award-winning journalism into a collection of stories that are inspiring, entertaining, enlightening, and, occasionally, astounding. As a writer for the Orlando Sentinel, Kunerth found the extraordinary stories inside the lives of ordinary people: from the black man raised to believe he was white to the custody battle over a baby switched at birth, from the tragic death of a drum major to the living memory of 9/11. Forty: Newspaper Stories 1970-2014 encapsulates a career dedicated to exceptional storytelling.

Editorial Reviews

Jeff Kunerth's writing about the blur of people and events swirling around us has the clarity and beauty - often terrible beauty - of revealed truth. In economical, poetic prose he brings into focus, in all its astonishing permutations, colors, shades, agonies and ecstasies, a world we only thought we knew. - Greg Dawson, author of Hiding in the Spotlight and Judgment Before Nurember. ....What comes through in this collection of stories is that Jeff Kunerth is a writer with a compassionate heart. No matter how battered, hated or ignored a segment of society is, its members have an advocate who will listen and understand, and present them fairly and with respect to the world. -- Mark I. Pinsky, author of Met Her On The Mountain: A Forty-Year Quest to Solve the Appalachian Cold-Case Murder of Nancy Morgan. .....Jeff Kunerth is a writer and journalist of extraordinary humanity and curiosity for the mysteries of our shared condition. Jeff has the rare ability to shed new light on the culture by telling riveting stories of people living on its fault lines. -- Jacob Levenson, author of The Secret Epidemic, The Story of AIDS and Black America.
