'This Town,' a Scathing Insider's View of Washington

Hosted by

There’s no index in Mark Leibovich’s new book on Washington insiders, so “those players wishing to know how they come out will need to read the book.”  In This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus Plenty of Valet Parking—in America’s Gilded Capital, Leibovich details how politicians and media figures have become celebrities and how that influences the making of national policy. Leibovich is chief national correspondent for the New York Times Magazine.
