About the Book
SHENANIGANS is the memoir of a woman who became a successful media watchdog as well as a more sympathetic wife , mother, and daughter. Always surrounded by witty and strong-minded people, especially her supportive, force-of-nature husband, Kenigsberg more than held her own. She pursued a serious career as a media critic and professor and became a respected figure in 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.
