Ron Charles…[a] witty, surprisingly humane dramatization of that vaudevillian chapter in American politics…While staying close to the chronology of events, Mallon distinguishes his story from the library of books that have come before by shaping Watergate in his own inimitable way…Indeed, despite the country-shaking events constantly breaking in the background, this remains a novel of conversation and introspection, the dark fears of the famous and the humble. Mallon captures all the strange people who "made the Watergate a whole damned world unto itself," but he also makes that world seem very small. It's a dramatic reminder that, as Tip O'Neill was fond of saying, all politics is local.
