Kerri's book Pick of the Week is Thomas Mallon's "Watergate." The New Yorker called it "historical fiction that unfolds with the urgency of a thriller."

The book recounts the Watergate scandal not through the main actors, such as H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, but through Pat Nixon, Rose Mary Woods, Fred LaRue, and Teddy Roosevelt's daughter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth.
