Many historians have written about the Watergate conspiracy. But can a novelist throw new light on this traumatic moment in American political history?

Thomas Mallon does just that in Watergate, using drama and comedy to take readers behind the scenes of a national scandal, creating “a universal tragicomedy of ludicrous errors and malignant crimes, epic hubris and sorrow.”

Mallon is the author of Henry and Clara, Two Moons, Dewey Defeats Truman, and Aurora 7.
