This autobiography, Personal History by Katherine Graham won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize – and deservedly so. Many autobiographies are barely disguised bragging books. But Katherine Graham wrote a cracker of a book.
The Daily Telegraph said that it “is a well—written, fascinating, moving and, in its social and historical context, important book.”
Katherine Graham became the publisher of the Washington Post after her husband became seriously mentally ill and committed suicide. She went on to become famous and feared in her own right.
Her time covered the Pentagon Papers and Watergate which led to the resignation of President Nixon, amongst other things.
She was personal friends with the Kennedy’s , the Reagan’s, Henry Kissinger and Warren Buffett – now that's a mixed crowd.
