Breslin, (James) Jimmy

(1930–  ) journalist; born in the New York City borough of Queens. Starting as a sportswriter for the New York Herald Tribune, he evolved into a self-described "street reporter"; his columns, for a sequence of New York papers, offered vignettes, character sketches, and commentary, in a scrappy, colloquial style. Also a novelist, he won a 1986 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
