A Good Life
NY, Simon & Schuster, (1995). An autobiography by the longtime executive editor of the Washington Post, whose tenure saw the Post challenge the U.S. government over publication of the Pentagon Papers and who also oversaw the investigative reporting of the Watergate scandal that led to Richard Nixon's resigning the U.S. Presidency. Inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen]: "Peter/ In friendship and respect/ Ben Bradlee." Bradlee's and Matthiessen's friendship dated back to the postwar years in Paris in the early 1950s. Foxing to edges of text block; near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Review of the book laid in. [#032458] SOLD
