The Corner

Mallongate

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with the historical novelist Thomas Mallon, author of Watergate. We discuss why he wanted to write a historical novel set in the 1970s, how he interprets the character of Richard Nixon, the bit role WFB plays in the book, and why Watergate is dedicated to Christopher Hitchens.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
