Washington Behind Closed Doors

I've recently had friends recommend two books that really give a nice behind-the-scenes look at American politics for the past 40 years or so. I haven't read them yet, but I'll pass along the titles.

First, there's Thomas DeFrank's Write It When I'm Gone. No matter what you think of Gerald Ford, he was a man who served at the highest levels of our government, and saw a lot. Now that he's gone, DeFrank is finally releasing a lot of inside stuff.

Then there's Robert Novak's memoir, The Prince Of Darkness. While I often disagree with the old coot, I'm sure he's got some of the best war stories.
