Little is known about Pat Nixon, she was so private and discreet. When Ann Beattie decided to write a novel in the form of a writer's manual, she used Mrs. Nixon as a model of how to create a character. The ironies mount. The result is a peculiar pathos. We talk about the unusual form of this novel and its’ special brand of compassion.
