As a special assistant to the president, Peggy Noonan worked with Ronald Reagan, and with Vice President George H. W. Bush, on some of their most famous and memorable speeches. In her thoroughly engaging and critically acclaimed memoir, Noonan shows us the world behind the words. Her sharp and vivid portraits of the Reagans, Bush, and a host of Washington’s movers and shakers are rendered in inimitable, witty prose. And her priceless account of what it was like to be a speechwriter among bureaucrats, and a woman in the last bastion of male power, makes this a Washington memoir that breaks the mold—as spirited, sensitive, and thoughtful as Peggy Noonan herself.
