    Heard Marjorie Williams was great, picked this up, but was not blown away The profiles are well written and interesting, but there was not a lot than that I see comments raving about The Woman at the Washington Zoo though, so I ll have to give that one a shot Most of the pieces were written in the 80s 90s, so there was a personal layer of nostalgia to the whole thing I don t know that much about politics of the era, but it s interesting to see how many names are still relevant I would be intere [...]

    Posthumous collection of profiles of political figures, compiled by the author s husband, Slate columnist Tim Noah Many are from the late 80 s early 90 s, and part of the pleasure of reading the book now derived from my having forgotten many of the relevant episodes what exactly was the deal with Iran Contra scandal again Lee Atwater tried to rehab his post Willie Horton ad reputation by joining the Howard U board of trustees Now that s chutzpahBeyond the content, she was just an excellent write [...]

    I read the first posthumous collection of Marjorie Williams work Woman at the Washington Zoo when it first came out, and I cannot recommend it highly Williams is witty, astute, sincere Her writing about Washington avoids cynicism and her writing about herself and her illness is heartfelt and smart This is the second collection of her work released after she died, pulled together by her husband, who is a reporter for Slate These are interesting, well written profiles, but they aren t quite the s [...]

    Pretty good read Definitely not as good as Woman at the Washington Zoo But this collection of her profiles shows that she had a really keen eye for seeing the whole person The people in this profile are not quite as interesting on the whole But there are a few that stand out most notably Colin Powell That is probably the best analysis of Powell I have ever seen.

    Interesting Most of the essays were written in the 90s and cover a period of time and issues I was only vaguely paying attention to as a middle and high schooler But they are very thoughtful profiles and I felt like I learned a lot Even though, again, the essays were dated, it is amazing how many people mentioned the book Carville, Laura Ingraham, Colin Powell are still relevant today.

    Less compelling than Woman at the Washington Zoo, but only because these profiles felt dated, ad because there weren t personal stories to balance the political ones Still, Marjorie William s writing is brilliant and so enjoyable to read.

    I like Marjorie Williams who wrote for the Washington Post and died of cancer Her husband, Timothy Noah, has published her essays You don w much like the people she writes about but get a good sense of who they are and the background of their times.

    I liked Woman at the Washington Zoo previous book by the author so much The writing in this book is excellent, but because they are political profiles some written in the 90s, much has changed and the profiles are dated I am very sorry she is not living now and writing.

    I m only finding out about Marjorie Williams now through this book So I had the pleasure of discovering her work at the same time that I learned she had died The essay on Colin Powell is deep.
