Here is Just’s masterpiece – an epic chronicle of three generations of Washington power brokers and the womenfolk who loved them (except when they didn’t). The Washington Post described this book as “a fascinating if ultimately painful fairy tale, complete with a family curse. The decline of the Behls represents the decline of Washington from the bright dawn of the American century into the gathering shadows of an alien new millennium.”
