The Daring Succeed tracks the progress of three driven, beautiful women determined to ascend the career ladder to fame as national television news anchorwomen. Barbie Brooks puts career above motherhood and stable marriage. Diane Washington sees it as a rise out of the black ghetto and onto the stage as a dancing and singing national newswoman. Summer Hawthorne is thrilled by the investigative opportunities afforded by her position and enthusiastically accepts the risks and rewards attended to them.

Mr. Hirsch’s novel also tracks the progress of a suave, vocally blessed and confident sometimes poetic young television newsman, Johnson Simmons, who manages to achieve success in the business while maintaining a strong sense of parenthood and marital faithfulness and being a bit of a Renaissance man.

The two short stories which conclude this work highlight the daring personalities of an Academy Award winning actress and a daughter-in-law, and of an Iranian born major league baseball all star pitcher and his sister.
