About the Book

cover-tjfp-100-rgb72.jpgThe first collection of feature-length reporting from one of Cleveland’s favorite print journalists. (Foreword by Joe Eszterhas.) Michael Heaton has reported on as wide a range of stories as any active Cleveland journalist. On any given day his byline might appear in any section of the Plain Dealer, where he is a regular columnist and reporter. To get the story he has put on boxing gloves and entered the ring, and gone undercover with the FBI and mob informants. He has interviewed chefs and coroners, gypsies and priests. This collection of 40 newspaper and magazine stories shows Heaton’s Cleveland to be a crazy quilt of bold schemes, failed dreams, and colorful characters. (Heaton is the brother of actress Patricia Heaton and son of sportswriter Chuck Heaton.)
