Ann Beattie on Her Novel Mrs. Nixon

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Ann Beattie discusses Mrs. Nixon, an imagining of the life of one of our most mysterious and intriguing public figures, the only modern First Lady who never wrote a memoir. Beattie reconstructs dozens of scenes in an attempt to see the world from Mrs. Nixon’s point of view, to explore what it must have been like to be married to such a spectacularly ambitious and catastrophically self-destructive man.
