Über diesen Titel


A biography of the sole heir to the A&P supermarket empire describes Hartford's upbringing; his life of excess; his womanizing; his relationships with Nixon, Howard Hughes, Lana Turner, Hugh Hefner, and others; and his fall. Reprint. NYT. K.

From Library Journal:

Now almost 80 years old and living in a dilapidated New York City brownstone, Hartford is a broken relic of what once was one of the richest men in America. Heir to the A&P fortune, Hartford led a sordid life of bad business deals, dysfunctional marriages, sexual trysts, and substance abuse, all of which have rendered him physically and financially crippled. Though Forbes senior editor Gubernick delivers an extremely well-researched chronicle of Hartford's life, along with an interesting chapter on the rise of the A&P chain, she less than effectively explores the heart and soul of the man. This is a mostly removed, factual presentation of events, rather than a probing examination of the troubled psyche that made Hartford destroy his wealth, his family, and his physical and mental health. Was it the spoils of unbridled wealth and privilege, a neurotic and overbearing mother, or an untempered libido on an unfocused and weak individual that resulted in such a tragic existence? Unfortunately, Gubernick gives no answers.
