Hailed as a “hysterically funny portrait of the capital’s vanities and ambitions” (The New Yorker), This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America’s Gilded Capital captured America’s attention as the political book of 2013.

Washington, D.C., might be loathed from every corner of the nation, yet these are fun and busy days at this nexus of big politics, big money, big media, and big vanity. There are no Democrats and Republicans anymore in the nation’s capital, just millionaires. In This Town, Leibovich—chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine—presents a blistering examination of our ruling class’s incestuous “media industrial complex.”

The paperback edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller includes a new Introduction and new reporting by Leibovich. Franklin Foer, editor of The New Republic, and David Brooks, New York Times Op-Ed columnist, speak with Leibovich about what really happens inside the Beltway. Book signing to follow.
