Editorial Reviews

Hilton Kramer
One of the few indispensable autobiographies ever written by an American — and one of the best written too... It deserves to be recognized as a first class achievement.

What People are Saying About This

John P. Marquand
Witness is much more than a series of intrigues and trials... no psychological novel can excede it in interest. No study of concflicting characters under stress could go deeper with Chambers, or be more puzzling.... The book was not written as literature, but literature it is of a high order.
