THIS TOWN BY MARK LEIBOVICH PDF

Many books have been written about the corruption, venality and incestuousness that characterise Washington DC, but none has been as highly anticipated or amusing as This Town. Sparking that interest was the revelation that a young, ambitious Capitol Hill press aide, whom Leibovich had been cultivating as a source, was secretly forwarding him emails that provided an insight into how Washington really works. What might have seemed like an incident of minor significance to a select group of Beltway insiders was soon the subject of relentless media coverage. But more often This Town generates chuckles rather than indignation. Leibovich, a dazzling writer, is having too much fun marvelling at the circus to be overly cynical.

A Confederacy of Lunches

These chapters are mini-masterpieces of politico-anthropological sociology. Both occasions were yes, of course sad, both men having been cut down in their prime or near prime.

But dynamos are exhausting, and Obama had reached his exhaustion point early on, after which he seemed to take perverse enjoyment in undercutting and humiliating his special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
