The Prince of Darkness: 50 Years Reporting in Washington

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Robert Novak has been a Washington insider since the days when the place was a sleepy southern town and journalism was built on shoe leather and the ability to cultivate and keep sources.  He has covered every president since Truman, known personally and professionally virtually all the big movers and shakers in D.C., and broken a number of the biggest stories.  In this compelling memoir, he puts it all into perspective and reveals the extraordinary changes that have fundamentally remade Washington, politics, and journalism.

In typical Novak style, he tells how politics and journalism truly operate at the highest levels, both publicly and behind closed doors.  The Prince of Darkness is an entertaining as well as perceptive view of fifty years in the life of our Nation's Capital, its most powerful and colorful characters, and the people who cover it.

ROBERT D. NOVAK writes "Inside Report," one of the longest-running syndicated columns in the nation, and the "Evans-Novak Political Report," which he began in the 1960s with the late Rowland Evans.  Now a Fox News contributor, he spent twenty-five years as a political commentator for CNN.  Novak is the author or coauthor of five other books, the most recent being Completing the Revolution.
