Collected Writings

Finished January 6
The Woman at the Washington Zoo by Marjorie Williams
This collection of writing by the journalist Marjorie Williams is divided into three sections. The first section is a selection of her writing on politics in Washington, D.C. and has very interesting insights into a variety of players. The second section is a collection of essays, many of them previously published in the Washington Post. They are about her life, her family, and insights into life in general and really show her intelligence. The last section is about her experience with cancer (which she died from in January 2005). Her honesty and insights took my breath away. We have lost an amazing writer with her death.
