Following the resounding success of the eponymous West End and
Broadway hit play, "Frost/Nixon" tells the extraordinary story of
how Sir David Frost pursued and landed the biggest fish of his
career--and how the series drew larger audiences than any news
interview ever had in the United States, before being shown all
over the world.
This is Frost's absorbing story of his pursuit of Richard Nixon,
and is no less revealing of his own toughness and pertinacity than
of the ex-President's elusiveness. Frost's encounters with such
figures as Swifty Lazar, Ron Ziegler, potential sponsors, and Nixon
as negotiator are nothing short of hilarious, and his insight into
the taping of the programs themselves is fascinating.
"Frost/Nixon" provides the authoritative account of the only
public trial that Nixon would ever have, and a revelation of the
man's character as it appeared in the stress of eleven grueling
sessions before the cameras. Including historical perspective and
transcripts of the edited interviews, this is the story of Sir
David Frost's quest to produce one of the most dramatic pieces of
television ever broadcast, described by commentators at the time as
"a catharsis" for the American people.
