Wild Women in the White House: The Formidable Females Behind the Throne, on the Phone, and (sometimes) Under the Bed
Part Irreverent Portrait Gallery, part exuberant expose, Wild Women in the White House introduces an unforgettable array of feisty first ladies and mutinous housekeepers, bigamist brides, subversive office seekers, and, of course, the ever-burgeoning bevy of backdoor paramours who have held (or at least briefly handled) the reins of executive power.
Rollicking and revealing, this latest gem from the author of Wild Women and Wild Words from Wild Women offers an eye-opening journey into the realm of the eclectic sisterhood whose outrageous words and deeds have rocked the fusty old foundations of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue ... and sometimes the entire nation.
