Now in paperback from the award-winning author the "New York Times Book Review" called a national treasure, a fascinating, wholly original book about Pat Nixon that is also a fully realized account of fiction, fiction writing, and the fiction writer ("The" "Boston Globe").
The rare First Lady who did not write a book, Pat Nixon remains one of the most mysterious and enigmatic public figures in recent history. Ann Beattie, like many of her generation, dismissed Richard Nixon s wife. Decades later, she wonders what it must have been like to be married to such a spectacularly ambitious and catastrophically self-destructive man.
Beattie, a professor of writing at the University of Virginia, uses the elusive persona of Mrs. Nixon to examine how writers create characters, how they use detail, and what drives their storytelling. Like Stephen King s "On Writing," this fascinating and intimate account offers readers a rare glimpse into the imagination of a writer.
A startlingly compelling and revelatory work, "Mrs. Nixon "is an insightful and humorous examination of the First Couple who occupied the White House as the baby boomers came of age."
