J. Perel­man John Delore­an and S. I. New­house, dis­cus­sions of Pres­i­dent Reagan’s trip to Bit­burg, the first Iraq war, and a Nazi War Crimes tri­al being held in Israel for the first time since the Eich­mann tri­al. With arti­cles that orig­i­nal­ly appeared in Inter­view, The Paris Review, The New York Times Mag­a­zine, and The New York­ers Talk of the Town.” As a bonus, sev­er­al nev­er-before-seen pieces unearthed from the archives add extra spice to this extra­or­di­nary non­fic­tion collection.
