Join us for our October meeting! We'll be reading Watergate, Thomas Mallon's novel based on the events of this odd chapter in the American presidency.
From the March 2, 2012 review in the New York Times:
What Mallon captures particularly well is the fundamental weirdness and mystery at the center of the scandal. ... It appears that Mallon’s primary goal, one he achieves with great finesse, is to make the portrayals of his characters as believable as possible. Like the rest of us, they aren’t simply moral or immoral but are both clever and defensive, selfish and self-pitying, sweet and loyal, generous and venal.
The book is in paperback and available widely. If you want to support a local bookstore, here's a link to Politics and Prose: http://www.politics-prose.com/book/9780307474650
