"The early years at Esquire with Garry. He was sent me (sic) by Bill Buckley about whom he had written a sketch. He had no reportorial skills. I put him, as experiment, with Ovid Demaris, who was all reporter (and no writer). Ovid had just found Francis Gary Powers for me (nobody else could). They worked together most successfully (and improbably) through their earliest pieces. H. H." Fine in near fine . Dust jacket. (Spine on DJ.

About this title

Synopsis:

The essential Garry Wills, Lead Time offers a provocative view of a pivotal era in America from one of our most esteemed historians. In this collection of essays, written between 1968 and 1982, Wills explores American culture, politics, and mores, and demonstrates his astute and always interesting approach to his subjects, including Vietnam, Richard Nixon, Muhammad Ali, Pope John Paul II, and Ronald Reagan. Newly reissued with a new preface, this is a must-read from “a mind that likes to range beyond the usual boundaries of periodical journalism” (New York Times).
