Monica Crowley served as a personal assistant to former president Richard M. Nixon from July 1990 until his death in April 1994. This remarkable story of his final public and private years is based on full reconstructions of the conversations she had with him at the time. Nixon in Winter puts the reader behind the scenes with the former president, allowing a unique glimpse into his life as elder statesman and private citizen. It is filled with dramatic revelations about Nixon’s influential role on the world stage, his hardheaded views on the end of the cold war, his powerful inside role during the 1991 Persian Gulf War, his poignant thoughts on the legacy of Vietnam, and his frustrations with being out of power. With astonishing candor, Nixon also shares his final, startling thoughts on Watergate. Above all, he reveals a more private self than ever before as he struggles to deal with aging and the only force that could ultimately destroy him: death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It is gossipy, outrageous, comical, fascinating, entertaining, delightful stuff…There is something a bit eerie about it, too…There is the sense of a Beckett play in progress: a lonely old man not far from death sits in a room sifting through memories and talking to a young woman.”

    New York Review of Books

  • “Fields does a great job with the dialogue.”

    AudioFile

  • “The man was opinionated and dogmatic—and sometimes quite insightful—to the end, so readers curious about Nixon’s later years and opinions will be interested.”

    Booklist

  • “These private moments reveal much about a man who remains an enigmatic figure.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " The author worked for former President Nixon during his final years, and obtained permission to write about this time and about him upon his passing. The result is a very interesting inside view of an old man that has been through much, and worked hard to gain (and re-gain) respect. "
