“Mr. Dean’s book will remind people of why Nixon deserves so unflattering a historical reputation…It should also serve as a renewed cautionary tale about elevating politicians with questionable character to high office…Dean’s resolve to reconstruct this dismal tale of high crimes and misdemeanors is commendable… In addition to creating a definitive historical record of how the Watergate scandal unfolded, “The Nixon Defense” resolves some major unsettled questions.”

Lena Finkle’s Magic Barrel has no antecedents … it transcends its influences so thoroughly it creates a form, a language all its own … This is the power of the graphic novel, that it not only tells but also shows us, that by integrating images into the narrative, it draws us into Lena’s experience with the force of memory.
