By Charles L., Jr. Mee

In a literary tour de force, Charles L. Mee Jr. interweaves photos and impressions from his lifestyles with political reflections encouraged through a gathering with former Nixon aide H. R. Haldeman. The meeting—to talk about the potential of taking part with Haldeman on a e-book approximately his White apartment experience—becomes the automobile for Mee’s probing of his personal political perceptions.

Here, uncovered to the scrutiny of an unsparing journalistic eye, are the deep emotions of loss and failure that the Nixon debacle engendered in these american citizens who got here of age in the course of Kennedy’s “Camelot” and marched to the anti-Vietnam anthems of the Johnson era.

Mee writes with relocating authenticity of his Midwest-Catholic boyhood and kin roots attaining again to the Plymouth payment; he vividly recounts the actual and mental ache of a near-fatal conflict with polio at age fourteen and his highbrow awakening in the course of convalescence

But the main pivotal memories are of his pupil years at Harvard and his reviews aas an editor/writer/activist within the Nineteen Sixties. there's wonderment and bewilderment in Mee’s telling of this time. in addition to others of his iteration, he asks: “What occurred? Who have been the genuine betrayers of the dream?”
