Review: Reputation: Portraits in Power

User Review  - Rachel Gold - Goodreads

Less compelling than Woman at the Washington Zoo, but only because these profiles felt more dated, ad because there weren't personal stories to balance the political ones. Still, Marjorie William's writing is brilliant and so enjoyable to read. Read full review

Review: Reputation: Portraits in Power

User Review  - Kappy - Goodreads

I liked "Woman at the Washington Zoo" (previous book by the author) so much. The writing in this book is excellent, but because they are political profiles - some written in the '90s, much has changed and the profiles are dated. I am very sorry she is not living now and writing. Read full review
