Reviews

"Anyone remotely curious about either of these larger-than-life characters will want to read Brady's book." --"Publishers Weekly "on" Frank & Ava"

"Brady reveals the human side of a grand love affair that somehow survived a marriage and a divorce, epic battles, and sweeping romantic gestures...This honest and contemporary look at an almost mythical couple is a quick-paced and poignant tale that will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers." --"Library Journal "on" Frank & Ava"

"More than a story of a dizzying love affair, " Frank & Ava" depicts the profound aftershocks of a relationship."
"-BookPage "on "Frank & Ava"

"A riveting account of the most unlikely Republican in the history of American politics. John Brady's fascinating rise-and-fall biography of Lee Atwater also makes you wonder who'd be sitting in the White House today if he had not died at the too-early age of 40." --"Christopher Buckley, "author of" Thank You for Smoking, "on" Bad Boy: The Life and Politics of Lee Atwater"

"John Brady has made a compelling story of all the unprincipled things Lee Atwater did to make our national politics into a low-down gutter fight. He was indeed the meanest son-of-a-bitch in the political valley till he came to the Valley of Death. In a better world, angels' stories would enthrall us more than those about bad guys like Atwater, but in the one we have, the bad guys' stories rule." --"George V. Higgins, " author of "The Friends of Eddie Coyle, "on" Bad Boy: The Life and Politics of Lee Atwater"

"It seems to say almost everything to be said about talking to others for publication." --"Columbia Journalism Review on The Craft of Interviewing"

"This is a must-read book for serious film buffs, and fun for anyone who is interested in the stories of some of the most successful screenwriters at work today." --"People magazine on The Craft of the Screenwriter"

"A worthy and needed guide." --"Gay Talese, author of Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, on The Interviewer's Handbook"
