Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this memoir written by Katharine Graham became a #1 National Bestseller. She was the woman who piloted the Washington Post through the crises of the Pentagon Papers and Watergate. But here is the awkward child who grew up amid material wealth and emotional isolation; the young bride who watched her brilliant husband - confidant to JFK and LBJ - plunge into the world of mental illness that would culminate in his suicide. And here is the widow who shook off her brief insecurity to take on a president and a pressman's union as she entered the profane boy's club of the newspaper business. A fascinating read! 642 pages, including an index and 32 pages of photographs. There is a small cut on the lower right corner of the binding and a faint crease across the front. No marks or tears. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
