The riveting tale of one woman’s journey and her rise to power, Anna Hastings gives readers an inside glimpse into the workings of journalism in Washington. Drury takes his own experience in the field to reflect on the state of journalism in the 1970s. In contrast to his other series’, notably Advise and Consent, he humanizes the very field he often calls into question. Anna Hastings is a magnificent novel of Washington journalism, shown through the eyes of vivid, fascinating, and humanly likable characters.
“Anna Hastings is both a fresh face and a fresh start in Drury fiction” – John Barkham, The Victoria Advocate 1977
