Garry Wills: Adventures of an Observer

Email a Friend

Pulitzer Prize–winning historian and journalist Garry Wills discusses his life, career, and how remaining an outsider has let him maintain contacts and friendships across the ideological spectrum. In his latest book, Outside Looking In: Adventures of an Observer, he writes frankly about deeply personal issues, including his devotion to his wife, his troubled relationship with his father, his strong Catholic faith, and gives descriptions and impressions of presidents and other important figures he has dealt with over five decades.
