The Fireside Watergate


This is a wonderful vintage book, 1973 Sheed & Ward Publishing. Hardcover with dust jacket. Garry Trudeau and Nicholas von Hoffman. Very clean inside, no writing, marks etc. Binding tight and straight. Brown cloth hardcover boards front and back very good. Jacket is good, there is light shelf wear along top edge. The jacket is fairly shiny and clean.

The their first collaborative effort, the authors Nicholas von Hoffman and Garry Trudeau readily embraced the mystery that was Watergate. The chronicle its unraveling in compelling language sure to engage even the most cynical reader. Although the authors had at their disposal the news gathering of the Washington Post, they refused to use it, relying rather on their own personal experiences as purveyors of innuendo for this book. Wonderful satire of a pivotal moment in history sure to please any reader and particularly political junkies. It is full of humor and mischief, yet one can sense the anger seething underneath the jokes.
