Watergate by Thomas Mallon.. Mallon’s deft touch and fine ear bring everything he writes to life. I hate when he’s called an historical novelist: he is a great novelist, with grace and smarts to spare.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"If ever a historical event was worthy of a comic novel, it’s Watergate, and Mallon, with several outstanding historical novels to his credit (most recently, Fellow Travelers), has the skills to write it. What a cast of characters we meet!...Mallon writes with such swagger that it all seems new again. A sure winner, for its subject and Mallon’s proven track record as a historical novelist, and because it’s good."

Library Journal

"In this stealth bull’s-eye of a political novel, Thomas Mallon invests the Watergate affair with all the glitter, glamour, suave grace and subtlety that it doesn’t often get."

The New York Times
