A tight, fairly attractive first edition of this memoir by the White House insider and beloved White House correspondent (1920-2010), inscribed and signed by her large and bold in black fineline on front flyleaf: "Chicago / 1970 / For Nancy and Adlai -- / in hopes they enjoy / reading this book as / much as I enjoyed / living it -- / And perhaps sharing / the joys and bruises / of campaigning in the / whistlestop chapter -- / Liz Carpenter." Adlai E. Stevenson III (b. 1930) had just became Democratic senator of Illinois at this time, serving until 1981.
