From Barnes & NobleLongtime Washington Post editorial page editor Meg Greenfield was the ultimate Washington insider. She came to the capital at the same time as the Kennedy administration and started at the Post in 1968, where she was universally acclaimed for her editorial wit and savvy. Washington is a book Greenfield worked on during the last two years of her life; she told her literary executor, historian Michael Beschloss, what she was up to, and he has contributed a thoughtful afterword on the book's creation.
In Washington, Greenfield takes the reader inside the corridors of power and reveals the true nature of the culture there. From her perspective, it's like a huge high school, where everyone is completely self-absorbed and status-seeking. Some are teacher's pets, some are class clowns, but all are fiercely competitive. It takes an insider like Meg Greenfield to give us the true story of what goes on in the nation's nerve center.
