Now re-issued with an appreciation by Henry Kissinger, this is the late Katharine Graham s Pulitzer Prize-winning autobiography.
Katharine Graham's father was a multi-millionaire who left private business and government service to buy and restore the down-and-out Washington Post.
Her husband Phil Graham was a brilliant and charismatic man whose plunge into manic depression and eventual suicide is recounted movingly and charitably in this book. Above all, Katharine Graham tells her own story - the contradictions of her privileged yet lonely childhood; the tragic drama of her marriage - and the challenges of her new life as the head of a great newspaper company.
