Praise

“Richly salted with humor and anecdote. . . . Germond knew everyone, went everywhere, saw everything; his droll style keeps the plot hustling along.”

“A love story about a political journalist’s life, plainly and wonderfully told.”
The Washington Post

“A delicious, anecdote-filled memoir of almost half a century of political reporting.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Everyone who reads this marvelous memoir—and it deserves to have many, many readers—will have a favorite anecdote among the countless tales that Jack Germond piles up.”
The Weekly Standard

“Irresistibly enchanting. . . . Germond weaves a tale of the political goings-on in Washington and the nation that made the history of the past 40 years and more—all sweetened by unflagging personal modesty. He is the sort of reporter of the old school whose self-effacing professionalism raises the question of why anybody needs a new school at all. . . . I found it impossible to move swiftly or inattentively through a single page of this book, so lush it is with detail, with flashing insight.”
Baltimore Sun
