Just finished reading Michael Hainey’s fantastic book, After Visiting Friends: A Son’s Story.
The story follows Michael Hainey as he searches to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of his father, Bob Hainey, who was an editor at the Chicago Sun-Times in 1970.
The main plot of the story is, in itself,  extremely compelling. But I think I got more out of the parts discussing Chicago’s storied newspaper culture. Mike Hainey also goes into detail about growing up in Chicago, his relationship with his mother and his family’s long history in the city.
