Abstract:

ISBN 0394498763 LCCN 7614164.

"Relates in detail the biggest stories the author has been involved with in the last twenty-five years--ranging from private evening with presidents to the hectic eighteen-hour days in the milling crowds on the floor at national conventions, from traveling around the world with Vice-President Johnson to accompanying Pat Nixon on her trip around the world, from the beats she scored to the scoops she missed. Above all, her account is replete with amusing and revealing anecdotes about four presidents--Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford--at work and at play, with heretofore untold particulars about certain puzzling incidents (for instance, exactly why LBJ was chosen as JFK's running mate in 1960, and the reason why Nixon went out to the Lincoln Memorial in the middle of the night to talk to peace demonstrators after the Cambodian incursion in 1970). Interlaced with such stories, Mrs. Dickerson gives a glimpse of just what day-to-day life is like in the capital, and how the nation's business is conducted not only in committee rooms and on the floor of Congress, but in candlelit dining rooms in Georgetown and on country weekends. She is equally candid about her private life, including her beaus during her early years in Washington (JFK and Scoop Jackson, among others); her marriage to C.W. Dickerson and their purchase of Merrywood, where Gore Vidal and Jackie and Lee Bouvier grew up; as well as stories about her own children and an insider's formula on the art of entertaining in Washington."--Jacket flap.
