Watergate by Thomas Mallon
In Watergate, author Thomas Mallon explores the behind-the-scenes activity of the famous scandal, but he does it in the form of a novel. Not only do we get private interactions between Richard Nixon and his wife, Pat, but also Rose Mary Woods and the tape erasure; Fred LaRue, the Mississippi oilman who was the bagman with the hush money; Dorothy Hunt, wife of E. Howard Hunt; and Nixon confidant Alice Roosevelt Longworth, whose caustic tongue brings a unique perspective to the numerous personalities and their bumbling actions. Thomas Mallon's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch saying, "Although Watergate isn't genuine history, it makes for genuinely fascinating fiction."
