"I thought that he was nuts or something!" That was Patricia Ryan Nixon's initial response to young law student Richard Nixon's marriage proposal on their first date. It took two years of campaigning to convince the young college graduate of his sanity and good intentions. Their 1940 marriage marked the beginning of a 53-year alliance that was, as this intimate book describes, both close and occasionally turbulent. Using primary documents, biographer Will Swift (The Roosevelts and the Royals) gives us a clear sense of the intricate interactions of this complicated pair. Editor's recommendation.
