The Woman at the Washington Zoo by Marjorie Williams

I really enjoyed this collection of essays, though I must admit I skipped some of the profiles of politicians and Washington insiders about whom I know nothing. I especially liked her "Portrait of a Marriage," which talks about the relationship between Clinton and Gore. Her essays about family life and about her struggle with cancer (a battle she lost in 2005) are also great. She had a good eye for life and a good way of putting things.
