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 Pod Save America listeners who hunger for more intimate Beltway knowledge.
“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
