What to say about this book. This book was all over the place. It is by the woman who claims to have borne President Lyndon Johnson's lovechild. The subtitle of the book is "The Love Story of Madeleine Brown and President Lyndon Baines Johnson." However, what Brown describes is a series of sordid trysts, and her obsession with the president.

No wonder this book is out of print! It is terrible. The author Madeline Brown claims to have had a long standing affair with Lyndon Johnson. This relationship gave her entre into his world.

I read this after reading "LBJ and the Kennedy Killings" (recommendation of the author). I thought this was a great book as it read like a novel. At times, I had to keep remembering that it was a memoir of the author about her life and her affair with President Johnson. It was very interesting and because she knew so much about LBJ, his staff and his friends...I find it to be truthful in nature.
Found this at a flea market. Never heard of Madeleine Brown before or the LBJ conspiracy theories. About 3/4 of the book was interesting except for her ridiculous accounts of their sexual trysts, last 1/4 was a struggle- glossed over it. This lady seemed somewhat certifiable. But that's not really surprising. Learned quite a bit more about local Dallas - Austin history regardless.
