Katharine Graham's Washington by Katharine Graham
Book DescriptionAs a fitting epilogue to a life intimately linked to Washington, D.C., Pulitzer Prize winner Katharine Graham, the woman who transformed The Washington Post into a paper of record, left behind this lovingly collected anthology of writings about the city she knew and loved, a moving tribute to the nation s capital. To Russell Banks, it is a place where no one is in charge and no one, therefore, can be held responsible for the mess. To John Dos Passos, it is essentially a town of lonely people. Whatever your impressions of Washington, D.C., you will likely find them challenged here. Experience Christmas with the Roosevelts, as seen through the eyes of a White House housekeeper. Learn why David McCullough is happy to declare I love Washington, while The Washington Post s Sally Quinn wonders, Why Do They Hate Washington? Glimpse David Brinkley s depiction of the capital during World War II, then experience Henry Kissinger s thoughts on Peace at Last, post-Vietnam. Written by a who s who of journalists, historians, First Ladies, politicians, and more, these varied works offer a wonderful overview of Katharine Graham s beloved city."
