This is a collection of all Schell's Watergate/Nixon-era pieces from The New Yorker. Schell, who was a classmate of Wallace Shawn's, wrote for famous New Yorker editor William Shawn (father of Wallace). I'm a bit of a Watergate freak and this is one of those books that I just pick up from time to time and read in chunks.
