Resumo:

In this book, former White House staffer Buckley takes us for several walks around the town and shares with us a bit of his "other" Washington. They include "Dante's Paradiso" (Union Station); the "Zero Milestone of American democracy" (the U.S. Capitol); the "Almost Pink House" (the White House); and many other historical (and often hysterical) journeys. Buckley is the sort of guide who pries loose the clichés that cling to a place as mythic as D.C. Insightful and practical, this book shows us that even a city whose chief industry is government bureaucracy is a lot funnier and more surprising than its media-ready image might let on.--From publisher description.
