A Fictional Path to the Watergate Scandal

Whether non-fiction or fiction, history inspires authors.  Rather than a straight history, author and former GQ editor Thomas Mallon brings the Watergate-era Washington back to life in a historical novel.   Watergate-- a Novel, offers a fictionalized view of the scandal from the perspectives of seven lesser-known players. From his office in the nation’s capital, Mallon spoke with Kentucky Public Radio’s Rick Howlett.
