Review:

'This is iconic stuff and the book is a real peek...'
-- Grove

Book Description:

Published to satisfy the massive renewed interest in Sir David Frost's astounding feat of journalism following the huge success of the eponymous West End and Broadway play, Frost/Nixon tells the extraordinary story of how Frost pursued and landed the biggest fish of his career. When he first conceived the idea of interviewing Richard Nixon and trying to bring the ex-President to confront his past, he was told on all sides that the project would never get off the ground. Nobody believed that Nixon would agree to Frostís editorial control, or even to talk about Watergate at all. Yet in the end the project succeeded, and the series drew larger audiences than any news programme ever had in the United States, before being shown all over the world. Including hilarious tales of the people he encountered along the way and fascinating insights into the making of the television series itself, this is Sir David's own story of his pursuit of disgraced ex-President Richard Nixon Ė one that is no less revealing of his own toughness and pertinacity than of the ex-Presidentís elusiveness. Frost provides an account of the only public trial that Nixon will ever have, and a revelation of the manís character as it appeared in the stress of eleven gruelling sessions before the cameras. Fully revised and updated with historical perspective, and including transcripts of the edited interviews, Frost/Nixon describes Sir David Frostís quest to produce one of the most dramatic pieces of television ever broadcast.

Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 200 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Following the resounding success of the eponymous West End and Broadway hit play, Frost/Nixon tells the extraordinary story of how Sir David Frost pursued and landed the biggest fish of his career--and how the series drew larger audiences than any news interview ever had in the United States, before being shown all over the world. This is Frost s absorbing story of his pursuit of Richard Nixon, and is no less revealing of his own toughness and pertinacity than of the ex-President s elusiveness. Frost s encounters with such figures as Swifty Lazar, Ron Ziegler, potential sponsors, and Nixon as negotiator are nothing short of hilarious, and his insight into the taping of the programs themselves is fascinating. Frost/Nixon provides the authoritative account of the only public trial that Nixon would ever have, and a revelation of the man s character as it appeared in the stress of eleven grueling sessions before the cameras. Including historical perspective and transcripts of the edited interviews, this is the story of Sir David Frost s quest to produce one of the most dramatic pieces of television ever broadcast, described by commentators at the time as a catharsis for the American people.
