Article Body:
Carl Veno’s book, Invisible Ink, pr
ovides an insider’s view of the new
spaper world during the author’s 25
-years as a journalist and editor -
 at a time when major events were h
aving dramatic affects on American
society. Told in a no-nonsense matt
er-of-fact manner, the tales of exp
erience are intermingled with the a
uthor’s family history, including t
he immigration of his Italian ances
tors to America more than 125 years
 ago. Reminiscent moments clearly r
eveal Carl’s fond memories of growi
ng up and his youthful love of New
York.

Various newspaper readership "wars"
 were destroying and absorbing each
 other during an incredible age of
change and discovery for the Americ
an people. Exciting and newsworthy
issues including men and women lear
ning to co-exist in the workplace,
mobsters, racism, riots, war and sp
ace travel were fighting for newspa
per space. Between all this the aut
hor reveals inner office politics w
ithin the industry. We all know fro
m our own experience, differences o
ccur at places of employment – mana
gement issues, co-worker competitio
n, etc. – and it is all here. Yet o
n top of this the reader is introdu
ced to interesting and eccentric ch
aracters, complicated work-related
relationships and office love affai
rs. The epilogue closes nicely with
 the fate of some of the newspapers
 mentioned in the book.
Prior to entering the world of jour
nalism, Carl spent time as a barber
, boxer and army trooper. Not inclu
ding his free-lance work and lectur
ing, Veno was employed by eight new
spapers (some of which won many awa
rds) and was nominated for the Puli
tzer Prize during his career. Carl
is now retired and able to pursue h
is love of exercise through jogging
 and continues to write books.
