Maxine Cheshire, Reporter
by Maxine Cheshire with John Greenya
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company
Illustrated with Photographs
Book Club Edition
Maxine Cheshire wanted to be a lawyer when she grew up; her father wanted her to be a Southern belle. Instead, she became an award-winning journalist for the Washington Post, twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
During her childhood in bloody Harlan County, Kentucky, Maxine learned courage and perseverance in her parents' home. Since her move to Washington in 1954, she has applied these qualities to reporting, relying as well on her own measures of energy, canniness and wit. The mother of four, she has juggled family life with a demanding, competitive career.
In the past two decades, she has broken many front-page stories, including an eye-witness' report of the Kennedy-Onassis wedding on Skorpios, the Nixons' keeping gifts of expensive jewelry from foreign governments, and the Tongsun Park scandal. In the nation's capital, Maxine Cheshire routinely brushes shoulders with newsmakers -- from first ladies Mamie, Jackie, Pat and Betty to such disperate celebrities as Teddy Kennedy, Henry Kissinger and Frank Sinatra.
This is an insider's intriguing account of dramatic, sometimes tragic events and colorful personalities, of what goes on behind closed doors -- whether the scene is the Sans Souci or Congressional chambers. Maxine Cheshire, Reporter, a lively and sobering account of the power struggles and policies that affect our nation, is a unique journal by a unique journalist.
