I began this book after reading Courtney Sullivan's recommendation in the NY Times. To my surprise, I had already read some of the pieces when they first appeared in the Washington Post. Not only were they equally relevant and entertaining the second time around; they are truly timeless, even though some of the political profiles are largely forgotten, and this (alas) is again an election year.Was this review helpful?

Washington in many ways is a city with a short memory, but Marjorie Williams deserves to be remembered. She was a non-partisan truth-teller and she wrote like an angel. This book should be required reading for a curriculum that may yet to be designed. -- catwak

A fascinating book from an insider's view of political personalities and personal reflections on life.
Having been an admirer of writer Marjorie Williams from articles written for Vanity Fair, I was intrigued when I came across the book. Immediately you are drawn into the events and people being observed and discussed. The information was not old drudged up stories being hung out again, the insight instead was fresh and thoughtful. The personal reflections were delivered with a style honest and captivating. While you get no hint of how remarkable this woman was from her own writings, you put the book down when finished knowing you have seen another human being's soul, and found it good.Was this review helpful?
