Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It is gossipy, outrageous, comical, fascinating, entertaining, delightful stuff…There is something a bit eerie about it, too…There is the sense of a Beckett play in progress: a lonely old man not far from death sits in a room sifting through memories and talking to a young woman.” New York Review of Books
“Fields does a great job with the dialogue.” AudioFile
“The man was opinionated and dogmatic—and sometimes quite insightful—to the end, so readers curious about Nixon’s later years and opinions will be interested.” Booklist
“These private moments reveal much about a man who remains an enigmatic figure.” Kirkus Reviews
