Title Profile & Character Information

This Town

Annotation
Washington, DC: its a hell of a town. Just ask Leibovich, a New York Times political feature correspondent based there. In this muckraking tell-all, which would be as darkly funny as its billed to be if it werent all true, Leibovich depicts a shameless place where funerals are for networking, disgraced aides come out ahead, and getting ones name in print is what matters. Embargoed until publication date, after which Leibovich will have to get out of town.
