"A delightful page-turner...that will put the lucky reader within the feverish excitement of a hopeful and tragic time."--Andrei Codrescu, NPR commentator and author of The Posthuman Dada Guide: Tzara and Lenin Play Chess In Government Girl, Huffington Post contributor and political aide Stacey Parker Aab shares her memories of being young and female in the White House during the Clinton Administration. An eye-opening account of a personal and political coming-of-age, Government Girl is a rare insider's look at life in the halls of presidential power--with an afterword in which Aab draws parallels between her own career as a Clinton White House intern and the current careers of Obama staffers--perfect for Wonkette blog readers who hunger for more intimate Beltway knowledge.
