This was written 30 years ago but nly recently published and the fervor and emotion Phoebe and Her Unicorn Activity Book of the time is still very apparent It wasn t as good as I d hoped but it was an interesting peek into Nixon post resignation and into the mindsetf the people who were still very personally angered by Watergate A pretty fast read but then I remember much The Tenant of what happened At first I thought it would be mostly revenge seeking pointed fingers but it was thoughtful and deliberate I really enjoyed reading about the task these reporterswriters faced and its finalutcome The breaking Unstoppable (Tracers, of Richard Nixon was indeed a pleasure to me This uote best summarizes Reston s attitude throughout the book as he chronicles the behind the scenes storyf the
FrostNixon interviews It s clear that Reston is concerned with hisinterviews It s clear that Reston is concerned with his personal vendetta calling it a uest for justice But instead The Moon and the Thorn of justice it s clear Restonnly wanted to see Nixon burn throughout the interviews that he bills as the conviction Nixon never got By the end Reston claims to feel pity for Nixon but continues to add personal jabs and even goes so far as to try to cast doubt UQ Holder!
