What I Saw at the Revolution: A Political Life in the Reagan Era
"Nancy Regan had her turn, Larry Speakes spoke out and Donald Regan put it all on the record. Now comes Peggy Noonan with a speechwriter's view of the Reagan White House, and it may be the best one of all."
A special assistant to the president during the height of the Reagan era, Peggy Noonan worked with him, and with then-vice-president Bush, on some of their most famous and memorable speeches. Now, in her engaging and acclaimed memoir, Noonan shows us the world behind the words. Her sharp and vivid portraits of those in and around power, her priceless account of what it was like to be a speechwriter among bureaucrats, and a woman in the last bastion of male power, makes this a Washington memoir that breaks the mold.
