If you don't have time to read the 401 pages of This Town: Two Parties And A Funeral, you will be delighted to read this summary and review of the book. For a book of less than a 100 pages, a lot of information is stuffed together for readers to enjoy. Each chapter gives a glimpse into the personalities of the people who rule the country, and the controversies surrounding them.
The book begins with the funeral of legendary journalist, Tim Russert. It mentions powerful people attending such as former President Clinton and his wife. Although it's a funeral, the movers and shakers of Washington, D.C, known as "The Club" use the time to make connections.
Prominent figures mentioned include Mike Allen, Andrea Mitchell, Tamara Haddad, Trent Lott and much more.
A thoroughly enjoyable book. I would recommend reading this book if just a small taste of the scandals and gossip appeals to you. At the end of each chapter is a summary of the major points of the chapter, just in case you missed something. This short book is perfect for reading while waiting at the doctor's office.
